The "Fatberg" vs Thames Water

" congealed cooking oil and wet wipes"

This Just In [Or Out, As The Case May Be]:
"While we’ve removed greater volumes of fat from under central London in the past, we’ve never seen a single, congealed lump of lard this big clogging our sewers before. The sewer was almost completely clogged with over 15 tonnes of fat. If we hadn’t discovered it in time, raw sewage could have started spurting out of manholes across the whole of Kingston." Sewer Watch

In the future, more fiber. But for now, more on Fatbergs and the Head Flusher of London.
