No Plan To Tackle Zombies In Leicester?

Try not to panic but there are no plans ready should a Zombie attack happen in Leicester.

The City Council has been forced to admit it has no plans to deal with a zombie invasion. It's all because a "concerned citizen'' used freedom of information laws to reveal what plans the authority had to deal with a Dawn of the Dead-style attack.

And even though they were said to be amused by the request, the council had to admit no such plans existed.

But a council spokeswoman reassured other concerned citizens that while there were no specific plans for a zombie invasion, aspects of its emergency plan might be able to be used in such a situation.

Here's what the request said: 

``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.''

Lynn Wyeth, the council's head of information governance, said: ``We've had a few wacky ones before but this one did make us laugh.

``To you it might seem frivolous and a waste of time, but to different people it actually means something.

``Everybody has their own interests and their own reasons for asking these questions.''
