WATCH: Leicester Is Unprepared For A Zombie Invasion

Shaun of the Dead

Zombies (from Shaun of the Dead)

It started, as a lot of these ideas do, with one simple question:

How much preparation has my hometown of Leicester (it’s pronounced “Lester”, in case you were wondering) undertaken in order to be ready in the event that we’re all overrun by zombies, like in Shaun of the Dead? Not much, I’ll bet.

I know, I’ll ask the council, they’re bound to know.

This then led to, well, THIS:

An important safety lesson for us all there, I think.

Will you be asking the same question of your local authority?
