A few years back I posted about a fatberg that was blocking the London sewers. Well, it is back and it is grosser and slimier and fatter than ever. It is so big they have brought in engineers to work out how to remove it. The 250m long 130 tonne of fat is comprised of wet wipes, nappies, oil and condoms. It may take over a month to move the mammoth monster fatberg as it has set hard. Pity the fool that has to chisel away at that.
Just like the iceberg took out the Titanic a “fatberg” nearly took out a suburb in London. The “fatberg”, aka an enormous clump of cooking fat and sanitary wipes, was found clogging the drain under a road in Kingston. The nasty messy was over 15 tonnes (size of a bus) and had reduced the sewer capacity to 5%. Left any longer the fatberg could have unleashed a torrent of raw sewage from the manholes, the likes the world has never seen.
