Warning to cooks

FESTIVE cooks are being warned that their Christmas turkey could come back to haunt them this year.

Tipping turkey fat down the drain can lead to blocked pipes and big bills. When fat cools it hardens and clogs up household pipes as well as main sewers.

Cooks should instead pour fat into a container and then discard it in a bin when cool.

Tony Griffiths, from United Utilities said: “Fat and grease cause more than half the sewer blockages we deal with every year. At Christmas, the volume of cooking fat entering the sewers goes up dramatically - which can spell big headaches for our engineers, and for households.”
