(NaturalNews) Remember when the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released a bizarre and cryptic warning back in May warning Americans to prepare for a "zombie apocalypse" (http://www.naturalnews.com/032454_zombie_apocalypse_CDC.html
Well now authorities in the UK have apparently done the same thing, with supposedly "top secret" reports revealing contingency plans should there be an "outbreak" of zombies.
According to a recent report in the UK's Guardian
, a man by the name of "P Store" contacted officials in Bristol and asked what plans the city had in place in the event of an invasion by the undead. Peter Holt, the city's service director of communication and marketing, apparently responded to him by sharing a secret document that outlines preparation tactics for various levels of zombie invasion.
"Please note that this document contains various reactions as it has been considered that some information contained therein must be redacted for the purpose of safeguarding national security," states the letter's headline. It then goes on to detail instructions for dealing with four stages of zombie invasion: ambient zombie level, enhanced activity level, major outbreak, and zombie pandemic level.
The rest of the report notes areas around town that are more prone to zombie invasion than others, and instructs the staff to whom the document was originally written to listen for certain codewords on radio and television that are indicative of a zombie
Even more bizarre are the instructions for dealing with a zombie should an individual run into one. "Fully connect the brain-stem from the body through either blunt force of full head removal," states the instructions. It also highlights the availability of handcuffs, tasers, protection suits, and other necessary equipment through the staff intranet.
The document was released in accordance with a Freedom of Information request, and is oddly similar to the strange announcement made by the CDC
back in May.Sources for this story include:http://www.guardian.co.uk/society/2011/jul/07/when-zombies-attack-bri...
