False teeth, a tiny thong and a car door were just some of the bizarre items fished out of the sewage works in the North West over Christmas.
United Utilities released details about the strange discoveries in the region’s sewage system as a warning of the problems they can cause to the network.
Underwear flushed down the toilet in Merseyside caused the entire sewer to collapse, while a car door down the drains in Cheshire caused extensive damage to the pipes.
Here's a list of what has been found:
- a dead fox
- a street sign
- a three-metre long pipe
- bags of money
- a car door
- a thong
