Hello all,

Hope you don't mind me posting this on here - I work at the BBC and we are looking for people in the SE1 area to take part in a documentary we are producing about London's fatbergs. At this early stage I'd love to speak with people living in the SE1 area and see if they'd be up for taking part so please see flyer below and get in contact. Thanks!

BBC Studios Science Unit is making a documentary exploring the hidden monsters clogging up our sewers – fatbergs! These structures, made of fat, wet wipes and other waste, clog up sewers and cause havoc in our water systems.

We need you! We are looking for people to come to our studio and see exactly what’s happening down their drains.

Filming will take place in late December and early January. For more details please contact [email protected] or 07734 978805

Best wishes

Thames Water have been visiting St George's Circus area. They told me they have found the biggest fatburg to date. It is longer and heavier than the 130tonne one found in East London last year, which is the biggest to date. Apparently tfl are not giving Thames water permission to remove it until January.....
It could take them a few months to remove, so if you live in the area, you might want to invest in a gas mask...
