What Is A Fatberg?

Hands up if you're guilty of flushing a wet wipe down the loo, or pouring oil from your frypan down the sink? Then you are a co-creator of a fatberg!

Fatbergs are a relatively recent phenomena, clogging our sewage systems and creating a dirty job that costs millions of dollars a year to keep under control.
