Leicester City Council have been forced to agree that it is completely defenceless should the city be attacked by zombies.
A "concerned citizen" used freedom of information laws to ask: "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 preparation for such an event is poor, and one Councils throughout the Kingdom must prepare for."
Council leader Mike Rotch admits that Leicester is unprepared. "I've had to go back to the drawing board for this one," he told us. "I see that the best way of dispatching them is with a head-shot. I have all the Lib-Dem councillors on an emergency training course today, equipped with Magnum .357's and Pump-Action shotguns. Unfortunately the Socialists have refused to take part on discrimination grounds. It's political correctness gone mad."
Leicester citizens are being advised to surround their houses with 'outward-facing treadmills'. Mr. Rotch says that this should repel all but the most determined zombie.
