During Summer 2018, members of the public were able to get up close and personal with the world-famous Whitechapel 'fatberg' on display at the Museum of London. Over the course of many years, this greasy orb contorted into a 130 tonne beast made out of fat, rubbish, oil and waste. It was unplugged from the sewers below east London after a nine week battle in 2017, and Museum of London fought to get its hands on some of the last remaining chunks.
Gross, fascinating, captivating – whatever you want to call it, it sure was a crowd pleaser. So much so that despite the museum's Fatberg! exhibition closing in July 2018, it continues to host a live stream of the fatberg direct from its quarantine in the museum's private store. Given the delightful name of FatCam!, 'viewers' can tune in to see how the mass continues to sweat, hatch flies, grow pustules and harbour toxic mould. Y'know, all the good stuff.
FatCam! is available 24/7 over on the Museum of London website, or enjoy a little slice of the action with our very own live stream snippet below.
