'Zombie invasion' hits North East forests

Forests in the north-east of England are holding "zombie running" events, where people are chased through the trees by costumed "flesh eaters".

Originating in the USA, the sport involves avoiding zombies along a three mile (5km) run with obstacles.

Alex MacLennan, from the Forestry Commission, said it was one of the "strangest" events it had ever hosted.

Runners must reach safe zones and keep tags on their belt, which represent lives, to complete the challenge.
