A giant fatberg has been removed from a UK sewer.

The fatberg had got stuck under Yabsley Street, clogging long sections of the sewer. It was the size of a small house.

Water engineers and cleansing experts spent two weeks using high-powered water jets and hand tools to chip away at the fat blob.

Apparently, the blob smelt like composting festival toilets and rotten meat!

Fatbergs are formed when oil, grease and fat poured down drains combine with non-biodegradable items such as wet wipes, nappies and cotton buds.

The UK London Council has reminded the public to be careful what they flush.
