Want to escape a zombie apocalypse? Then the only way is Essex.

And they discovered that residents of towns and villages in the Uttlesford area are best placed to give zombies the runaround.
The rural favourites are dotted with remote buildings to hide in, surrounded by farm land for food, and have good roads to flee on.
Freelance writer David Claridge, who lives in Felsted, said: “Zombies don’t scare me. Bring ’em on.”
The 60-year-old added: “Uttlesford is a great part of the country.
“We’ve got a shed to hide in and a concrete garage to fight them off from if the worst comes to the worst.
“The A120 isn’t too far away if we need to make an escape and there are acres of farmland and derelict buildings around to base a fightback from.”

Rentola’s Benjamin Vajic said: “The recent years have seen a multitude of problems afflicting the world.
“However, the situation could potentially worsen. What if a new epidemic arises that turns people into zombies, or a war breaks out between the living and the dead?
“If you don’t live in the safest place it may be wise to consider relocation in the event of a global zombie outbreak.”
