In a secure container, within a locked vault, the notorious Whitechapel fatberg continues to evolve and change.

The monstrous scion of its larger parents is still sweating and changing.

To monitor the fatberg and keep an eye on its evolution, a webcam has been set up inside the vault, and now we can all watch the fatberg as it strives for freedom.

Whilst on display the fatberg hatched flies, sweated and changed colour. Since going off display, fatberg has started to grow an unusual and toxic mould, in the form of visible yellow pustules, which has been identified as aspergillus. Conservators believe that fatberg started to grow the spores whilst on display and now a month later, these spores have become more visible.

Will it rise up and turn into an all devouring monster or lay quiescent for the moment it sees the red light on the camera go dark, and then wreak its revenge on the city that captured it?

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    By looking at that. No wonder our sewers are becoming more congested because of what we are throwing away is damaging the environment. Including plastics floating in the sea.
