When they arrived at the scene, closely followed by an ambulance they discovered that the “victim” was actually an actor wearing zombie makeup.
The issue was cleared up through a couple of tweets:
PC Saxon and PC Winfield have attended the canal between Stanley Ferry and Eastmoor in company with ambulance to reports of a male covered in blood staggering around.
Once they arrived they located a group of film makers in the last day of filming a Zombie movie with some very realistic makeup on show.
That’s the type of publicity money can’t buy. Given recent events in the United States, the police in question are probably thankful that they didn’t have to deal with another Miami Face-eater. [Source]
