Leicester City Council has been forced to admit that it lacks a comprehensive emergency plan should the Midlands city be hit by zombie attack.
The council received a Freedom of Information request which asked:
Dear Leicester City Council,
Can you please let us know what provisions you have in place in the event of a zombie invasion? Having watched several films it is clear that preparation for such an event is poor and one that councils throughout the kingdom must prepare for.
Please provide any information you may have.
The council admitted it did not have specific plans for attacks by hordes of the fictional undead.
Lynn Wyeth, head of information governance at the council told the BBC that publicity around MPs expenses had raised awareness of FOI rights.
She also added that the council had a range of emergency plans, and elements of these would presumably apply in the event of a Zombie invasion. ®
