The enormous fatberg is located under Whitechapel London

Thames Water, which has started a three-week "sewer war" against the monster, says that it is "a rock-solid mass of wet wipes, nappies [diapers], fat and oil weighing the same as 11 double decker buses".
Thames Water, which is in charge of London's water, said the fatberg was one of the largest it had ever seen.
"This fatberg is up there with the biggest we've ever seen".
Sewer workers investigating the 'berg say that over time it has solidified, and is now as hard to remove as concrete.
Thames Water officials said it is likely to take three weeks to dissolve the outsize fatberg.
Work in Whitechapel Road to remove the enormous fatberg has now started, with crews using high-powered jet hoses to break up the mass before suction tankers draw it out.
It will be broken up with high-pressure hoses before being taken to Stratford to be recycled.
