Odd spot

Manawatu Standard - - FRONT PAGE -

One of the big­gest "fat­bergs" ever seen in Bri­tain – a ball of fat as long as three foot­ball pitches – has been found block­ing a Vic­to­ri­an­era, 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. The mass of wet wipes, nap­pies, fat and oil weighs as much as 10 dou­ble-decker buses.
