London's monster fatberg is finally gone after a nine-week clean

A monster fatberg weighing more than ten double-decker buses has been cleared following a nine-week battle.

The 130-tonne congealed mass of fat, oil, wet-wipes and other sanitary products was lodged in a sewer four metres underground.

But it's now clear after workmen were forced to ditch machinery for hand shovels to battle Britain's biggest fatberg - in the final stretch beneath Whitechapel, in east London.

Thames Water staff worked in cramped conditions in their battle to clear the fatty mass from the sewer.
