On Tuesday in Sidmouth, England, government workers announced that they'd discovered a giant "fatberg" in the city's sewage system. A hardened mass of fat, oil and wet wipes stemming from locals' drains and toilets, the 210-foot fat berg is taller than the Leaning Tower of Pisa and about the size of six double-decker buses. Director of Wastewater Andrew Roundtree too Devon Live that the fat berg was "the largest discovered" in his team's service history. "If you keep just one new year's resolution this year, let it be to not pour fats, oil or grease down the drain, or flush wet-wipes down the loo," he added. "The consequences can be significant--including sewer flooding in your own home," he said. UPI reports that the largest fatberg ever discovered was an 820-footer in London's sewers.
