A drain in Ipswich was found inexplicably stuffed with Yorkshire puddings by Anglian Water.
In a tweet on Friday, February 15, the water company shared the contents of a drain in the town after discovering it was blocked by the roast dinner staple.
They said in the tweet: “Please don’t treat sewers as bins, avoid blocked pipes and compost your food waste.”
This is not the first time the people of Ipswich have abandoned savoury food in unsavoury places.
Suffolk-based environmentalist Jason Alexander, the man behind Rubbish Walks that encourage people to spend two minutes gathering plastic waste from Suffolk scenic coast, regularly finds heaps of naan bread dumped on the banks of the River Orwell.
