Time Out says

London accidentally gained a new celebrity earlier this year when an enormous ‘fatberg’  a huge, congealed blob of wet wipes, condoms, nappies, fat and cooking oil  was found lurking in a sewer under Whitechapel Road. The ‘evil, gut-wrenching, rancid blob’, as Thames Water affectionally called it, was the largest ever recorded. It weighed the equivalent of 11 double-decker buses and measured 250m – that’s six metres longer than Tower Bridge.

One final piece of the putrid mass remains and now you can see it for yourself at the Museum of London as part of the museum’s ‘City Now City Future’ season in 2018.  It might not be the Elgin Marbles, but it’ll certainly spark a few reflections on our consumer-driven, disposable society.

The Fatberg exhibition is extremely small. It’s interesting but you can see it all in about 5 minutes so if you’re planning on coming to see this make sure you have other plans for your London day out also. Most importantly when you’re there you can play the game everyone is playing....what chocolate bar is the wrappe4 sticking out of the fatberg. Gripping stuff!
