    A difficult and disgusting operation to clear London's largest "fatberg" from a London sewer raises a number of issues about our approach to waste disposal.

    Fatbergs are not natural - they are creatures of the modern age - and the blockages they cause can lead to raw sewage flowing up into shops, offices and people's homes.

    It is not a subject for the faint-hearted but there are 10 large fatbergs in London right now and hundreds of smaller ones across the country.

    They form when oil and grease, poured down drains, coagulates around the likes of tampons, baby wipes and condoms flushed down toilets.

    The Royal Ballet have moved from their traditional home of the Royal Opera House to a disused warehouse in south-east London.

  7. Poster Girls exhibition showcases forgotten design heroines

    With a dazzling spectrum of designs used to advertise the capital's transport system, for more than a century women have been shaping the way London is perceived.

    Yet the identity of many of these female artists has been hidden. Often they would not sign their work, or just used initials. Other pieces were subsumed under the name of an advertising agency.

    Now Poster Girls, an exhibition of work by women at the forefront of graphic design, is to go on display at the London Transport Museum in Covent Garden.

    nna Zinkeisen demonstrated that female artists were not restricted to supposedly "feminine" subjects
