Check out the moment absolutely disgusting blockages were discovered by Severn Trent.

The gross state of the pipes was revealed in videos showing horrid blockages capable of causing fatbergs, all thanks to plastic-containing wet wipes and oils, and fats and greases (FOG).

The water company identifies these nasty plugs using tiny remote-controlled cameras dropped into clogged pipes.

This method helps prevent homeowners from suffering costly flood damage.

The footage revealed gross build-ups, including a wet wipe mass blocking a pipe in the 97,000 kilometre Severn Trent network.

Another worrying scene was a sewer pipe completely clogged with FOG.

The obstructive waste piles were quickly sized down and removed by expert teams working in areas from Birmingham and the Black Country to the valleys of Gloucestershire.

Grant Mitchell, sewer blockage lead at the water company, said: "Blockages like these are a real menace as they can lead to flooding if not detected and dealt with.

"Every year our team removes 30,000 blockages from across our waste network, and each week we pull two and a half tonnes of wet wipes from our sewers, which is the same weight as a Range Rover.

“These blockages can cause costly problems for customers and the environment and can be major contributing factor in the formation of fatbergs.”

One of the largest recent fatbergs was uncovered in Small Heath, Birmingham in 2021; a hefty 300-tonne pileup that took days to deal with.

But according to Mr Mitchell, there is a simple solution.

He said: "Putting the wrong things down the toilet or drain can have a devastating impact on communities and the environment and we know blockages can be a horrible experience for our customers.

"We can all play a part in helping keep our sewers free of FOG.

"To do that, it’s vital we put fats, oils and any food in the bin, and remember to only ever flush the three P's down the toilet too – poo, pee and paper."

To shed light on this gross mess, the water company is running 'Sewer Stories', sharing the peculiar items found while keeping sewers clear - from false teeth to car tyres, and even a shed.
