United Utilities have found more than 90 tonnes of congealed oils and grease blocking a sewer in Liverpool.

The giant ''fatberg" is being chipped away by engineers and will eventually be sent away for recycling into biofuel.

The company say it'll cost more than £100,000 to remove the fatberg on Birchall Street.

They form when fats and oils from industry and kitchens get into sewers.
