LONDON (ALBOENEWS) — The is currently a monster residing in the London sewage system, a monster composed of 130 tonnes of congealed fat, wet wipes, and diapers, is one of the largest ever found.
The blockage could have been serious trouble had it not been discovered during a routine inspection. The blockage could have easily begun to cause raw sewage to start spilling onto streets. To break up the blockage, workers are having to wear protective suits and, at times, hammer away at the massive blob with shovels.
