Watch: Giant 210ft fatberg is finally cleared from Devon sewer after two months

A giant fatberg lurking under a Devon seaside town has been successfully removed. The 64-metre monster, made of congealed fat, oil and wet wipes, was discovered by South West Water under The Esplanade in Sidmouth just before Christmas. Work to remove the fatberg, the biggest discovered in Devon or Cornwall and thought to be one of the largest found so close to the sea, started in February. At times, water levels in the sewer made it too treacherous to enter and specialist jetting equipment and manual labour were used to break up the fatberg before it was loaded on to tankers.
