Don't you just love Freedom of Information Requests? Local bodies have to answer them and there is no better way to find out what is really going on…
There have been two supernatural type Freedom of Informaiton Requests which have stood out over the last few months. My favourite asked has to be, is Leicester City Council ready for a Zombie invasion. I know I'm not, so my interest was piqued at what Leicester Council's plan was. Surely there would be some great tips there for when the virus hits?
I'm sorry to say if you live in Leicester, it is time to batten down the hatches. They admit that their readiness is poor. Never mind according to Ed Thurlow, from www.terror4fun.com, a zombie invasion is unlikely.
My next freedomof Information story is based in Lancashire and South Ribble. Ghosts have been reported as causing accidents as well as other denizens of the supernatural. In August 2006 a car crash was caused by what the passenger believed was a ghost but the driver thought was a rabbit.
In the same request to the police it was noted that in 2009 “a ball with a green flash of light about 15ft long and about 100ft up in the air” was seen.
The green lantern perchance?
