Here’s another amusing little tale of the sort of bizarre things that go on in Birmingham: West Midlands Police have reported more than 70 calls to their help desks about ghosts, witchcraft and, er, zombies, in the last three years.
Witchcraft I can just about get my head round and ghosts are a whole other matter; whether you believe in them or not there’s no doubting that there are some inexplicable phenomena at times, which you can hardly blame people for associating with the paranormal. I myself experienced sudden drops in temperature, and being touched in an otherwise empty property – and that was in full daylight in a modern flat. Imagine the same sort of thing happening after dark in a spooky environment and it’s no wonder folk phone for help.
But… zombies? In a 21st century city? Seriously? I would love to know what activity sparked that particular report. Was it a rather sick practical joke, or is Birmingham really the location of the next zombie invasion? Can’t wait to find out!
