Britain releases 'zombie' plan

LONDON, Dec. 26 (UPI) -- Britain's Ministry of Defense responded to a Freedom of Information request by saying stopping an attack from the undead would be left to the Cabinet Office.

The tongue-in-cheek response to an FoI request from a member of the public states fighting off a zombie attack and handling the aftermath of such an invasion would be left to the Cabinet Office, as it handles coordinating emergency planning for the government, The Daily Telegraph reported Wednesday.

"In the event of an apocalyptic incident (e.g. zombies), any plans to rebuild and return England to its pre-attack glory would be led by the Cabinet Office, and thus any pre-planning activity would also taken place there," the defense ministry said.

"The Ministry of Defense's role in any such event would be to provide military support to the civil authorities, not take the lead. Consequently, the Ministry of Defense holds no information on this matter."
