From 3pm until around 8pm zombies will be walking the length of Regent Road and Marine Parade.

The zombies are taking part in a special film project directed by John Hales for the People’s Health Trust and not-for-profit July14.

The project will see a series of short films and web content created and set in Yarmouth after a zombie apocalypse.

The zombies are quite tame and people are even encouraged to take a “zelfie” with the creatures.
