Restaurants have been given advice on keeping their drains clear after a blockage caused by Yorkshire puddings piqued national interest.
We reported that drains in Ipswich had become blocked by soggy Yorkies, which Anglian Water had to then unblock.
It is not the first time the water company have cleared unusual items from the pipe work in this area - they have reportedly removed cutlery and even a whole mop head in the past.
They have now spoken to the restaurants in the surrounding area, explaining what is and is not appropriate to try and dispose of down the drain.
In a tweet, Anglian Water said: “Have you seen the Suffolk sewer Yorkshire puddings in the news?
