A massive ball of fat as long as three football pitches has been found blocking a Victorian-era, east London sewer. It’s the biggest ever seen in Britain.
The head of Thame’s Water, one of London’s main utility companies is warning people NOT to put things they shouldn’t down sinks and toilets.
One of the biggest “fatbergs” ever seen in Britain – a ball of fat as long as three soccer pitches – has been found blocking a Victorian-era, east London sewer.
“It’s a total monster and taking a lot of manpower and machinery to remove,” said Thames Water’s head of waste networks, Matt Rimmer. “It’s one of the largest we’ve ever seen.”
The rock-solid mass of wet wipes, nappies, fat and oil weighs as much as 10 double-decker buses.
