"Get a mop with a good mop head and place the mop at the exit and flush the cistern, it will fill to a couple of inches from the top of the wc, then push and pull the mop as though your plunging a sink but only pull n push about 2 to 3 inches no higher but do it at a quikish way"

"Be careful with what you use and how you use it. You don't want to be putting anything down it that may break off and make it worse - good luck."

"You can try using a manual plunger, or a air powered plunger, or a drain rod to break it up and push it through,"
