Monster 'fatberg' found blocking East London sewer
Have we resigned Lampard???

This thing is on an epic scale and speaks volumes for the type of people now calling the modern East End their home.

A 250-metre long "fatberg" weighing 130 tonnes has been found blocking a sewer.

The solid mass of congealed fat, wet wipes, nappies, oil and condoms formed in the Victorian-era tunnel in Whitechapel, London.

Thames Water described it as one of the largest it had seen and said it would take three weeks to remove.

The company's head of waste networks Matt Rimmer said: "It's a total monster and taking a lot of manpower and machinery to remove as it's set hard."

The company says fatbergs form when people put things they shouldn't down sinks and toilets.

Eight workers will break up the mass with high-pressure hoses"It's basically like trying to break up concrete," Mr Rimmer said.

"It's frustrating as these situations are totally avoidable and caused by fat, oil and grease being washed down sinks and wipes flushed down the loo.

"The sewers are not an abyss for household rubbish and our message to everyone is clear - please bin it - don't block it."

Lot of local kebab shops are going to have to source their meat elsewhere once this thing is finally removed.

Anyone know the exact location? My bet is Brick Lane - the original sewer was "rebuilt" around 1970. Been expecting a problem ever since.

Well the area certainly smells better tonight, coincidence or not. Last Saturday I was here and down by Aldgate East it absolutely fucking stunk so wasn't surprised to read this at all.

Pop that in a giant bun.

Add some special sauce and a couple of gherkins.

Sorted!

It's not a fatberg, it's a typical virgin waiting for the next suicide bomber.
