7 strange and amazing things found in public drains

Anyone that’s ever had to unblock a sink or any workman that’s ever had to inspect a drain will tell you that some really disgusting things do end up in our drains. However there are some times when disgusting just doesn’t cut it, when what’s found in the drain is beyond and above the call of duty for anyone but a professional to remove. Our own personal experience has given us some nasty shocks but they don’t really compare to finding:


1) This 14-foot alligator found during sewer maintenance works in Tampa, Florida.



2) This £21,000 stolen Rolex found by a street cleaner in Essex.

The sheer scale and range of what we throw away on a daily basis is staggering and is also a major cause of drain blockages. As seen above these blockages can be as simple and horrifying as the 66-foot fatberg (which was caused by flushed wet wipes) or as mind-numbingly horrifying as a fully-grown alligator.
