Leicester holds up a red rag to the undead | The Daily Dust delivering the best bric a brac, daily news and events with a British flavour

What happens when a Council admits it is unprepared for a Zombie attack? It gets attacked by Zombies.

It reads like a B-movie plot, and everyone knew it was going to happen, apart from possibly Leicester City Council. Last month’s Freedom of Information request, asking if LCC had a plan for a zombie invasion was answered with a confident no.

"…[We are] unaware of any specific reference to a zombie attack in the council’s emergency plan, however some elements of it could be applied if the situation arose."

So James Dixon raised an army of the undead (or at least 150 of them) and shambled from the city centre clock to the council office. Where they managed to press up against the glass, but the "open the door" principle defeated them.

Perhaps that’s enough of a defence?
