This story in the Motherwell Times today was quite alarming. It told readers about a zombie outbreak in Lanarkshire that happened after medical testing went wrong.
Some people were battening down the hatches.
Some people said the residents of Motherwell are a bit zombie-like anyway.
But – sorry to disappoint – we called the number in the story and were taken to the switchboard for M&D's, aka Scotland's Theme Park.
The fake story was concocted to drum up interest in this Halloween-themed zombie event.
Yule added that in today's print edition, the story is followed by an advert for the event. But on the web there's no such context.
He said the paper will do a proper review of the zombie event soon, which will help readers make sense of the original hoax story.
