An information request revealed this week that the British government has a plan to respond to a zombie apocalypse, according to The Telegraph.

“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 Ministry of Defence explained in a reply sent to a curious member of the public who passed the information to the paper.

“The Ministry of Defence’s role in any such event would be to provide military support to the civil authorities, not take the lead,” the response added. “Consequently, the Ministry of Defence holds no information on this matter.”

For any “Shaun of the Dead” fans out there, that tidbit should help ease the panic in case you can’t quite make it to the neighborhood pub to wait for this whole apocalypse thing to just blow over.
