preparation for the Zombie apocalypse

P Store (Mr) made this Freedom of Information request to Bristol City Council

The request was successful.

From: P Store (Mr)

Dear Bristol City Council,

I was very worried to see on the BBC, that Leicester City Council
has admitted that it has not made adequate preparation for an
attack by zombies. See
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-lei...

As a concerned Bristol resident, and as a responsible parent, I'm
most concerned by this, and would like to know whether Bristol City
Council is better prepared than those nay-sayers in the east
midlands.

We really must be told!

Yours faithfully,

P Store

Quote-marks Sometimes when I happen to be in or near the centre of Bristol on a Friday or Saturday night, there appear to be violent, loud, angry and obnoxious zombies all over the place.

Does this mean I am allowed to deal with this pandemic by "Fully disconnecting the brain-stem from the body through either blunt force or full head removal"?

That would probably have the knock-on effect of raising the average IQ of Bristol's population in the process.

Dan.
