Questions arose after Leicester City Council was asked to release its zombie invasion plans.

Robert Ainsley lodged a formal query via the Freedom of Information Act asking the council to release details of provisions in place in the event of a zombie apocalypse. "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," he wrote.

"Leicester City Council has 20 working days to answer but its head of information governance, Lynn Wyeth, took to local radio yesterday to address the issue."

Just because it's "anti-zombie" doesn't mean the provisions are gonna go to waste. Prepping for a "zombie attack" just means you are more prepared for something else that could happen and honestly you never know what could happen.

"Hey Man" I'm from the states! =P When the CDC put out that I nearly gave myself a concussion from headdesking. Having known what the actual real world zombie is, it's hard for me to get caught up in the fictitious risen from the grave brains munchers that Hollywood puts out.

Don't forget you must double tap. Always shoot a zombie twice, or they might EAT YOUR BRAINS!
