Really big pooh found in Scottish sewer (really!) - graphic image
A large Winnie the Pooh teddy, a bike, a fax machine, jeans and a snake were among a host of bizarre items found in Scotland's sewers last year.
Scottish Water said it dealt with more than 40,000 blockages in the drains and sewer network. Most were caused by people putting things such as
cooking oil, nappies and baby wipes down sinks and toilets. It is running an awareness campaign to highlight the issue, which it said creates costs of
more than £7m a year. A series of television and radio adverts will urge householders to dispose of kitchen and bathroom waste responsibly.
