An army of creepy visitors descended on the streets of Norwich today.

Terrified passers by watched in horror as the walking dead marched amongst busy shoppers on Gentleman’s Walk.

The chain-carrying monsters caused chaos as they spooked the unsuspecting public, chasing humans down the street.

Fortunately, they weren’t the real thing - but actors finding out how Norwich would cope with a zombie apocalypse.

Josh Walker, 18, of St Alfred Munnings Road, a telephone salesman, said Norwich would last less then five minutes if Norwich experienced a real zombie apocalypse.

He said: “I would run and hide if a real apocalypse came - we would all be dead.”

And Oliver Cousins, 20, of Buckham Place, a domestic cleaner, was more prepared.

He said: “I would probably try and store lots of food because I don’t want to go hungry.

“I would try and fight them off but I don’t think I would make it, I would probably just turn into one and get everyone else.”

But Mr Cousins said Norwich would stand a good chance against a zombie takeover. He said: “Norwich can be a bit of a zombie city sometimes, so perhaps we are ready.”

Luckily for Norwich, today’s zombies were played by actors from Thetford’s Combat Paintball team.

Find out why a zombie army came to town and if the city is ready in tomorrow’s Evening News.
