"Disgusting" fatberg removed from London sewer

Thames Water Authority clears a lot of fatbergs from London's labyrinth of decrepit sewer tunnels, but it wants everyone to know that the one under Yabsley Street was especially nasty.

Head of waste networks at Thames Water, Matt Rimmer, described the fatberg as "huge and disgusting". … Thames Water engineers said it took two weeks and "brute force" to unclog the foul-smelling mass of fat, grease and "unflushable" items from a sewage path in Canary Wharf.
