WATCH: Massive sewer rat emerges from 130-tonne 'fatberg'


A "monster" fatberg weighing more than 10 double-decker buses is blocking a sewer under a street in east London.

The deposit, made up of wet wipes, nappies and hardened cooking fat, has clogged up a stretch of Victorian sewer under the busy Whitechapel Road.

A worker battling to clear a 130-tonne fatberg in a sewer stumbled upon a rat scurrying over the solid mass of waste made up of trash including nappies, oil and condoms, a video showed.
