"Britain's Biggest 'Fatberg' Removed From London Sewer"

"Britain's biggest ever 'fatberg' has been removed from a London sewer. Thames Water say a 'bus-sized lump' of food fat mixed with wet wipes formed in drains under London Road in Kingston upon Thames."

"The blockage was discovered after residents in nearby flats complained they couldn't flush their toilets.

Thames Water believe if it wasn't removed it could have led to sewage flooding homes, streets and businesses."
