A huge fatberg, almost twice the weight of a space shuttle, has finally been dislodged from a London sewer; Thames Water is taking the opportunity to warn Londoners against tipping grease down the sink and objects such as underwear down the toilet.
A huge “fatberg” which blocked a London sewer for months was finally uprooted on Friday after a nine-week effort by engineers.
The 130-ton mass of congealed fat, oil, wet wipes and other sanitary products had been lodged in a meter-high sewer, four meters below the Whitechapel Road in east London. In the end, workers were forced to use shovels to remove the offensive mountain of waste.
H/t reader squodgy:
I never liked London. It really is a sewer. The best part is the M1 NORTH.”
London is doomed.
TPTB will relocate before the (planned) coming financial collapse, civil war and WW3.
WW3 will be interrupted and stopped by massive earth changes and London will not exist anymore…
