London is taken over by ‘the infected’ in Fear the Walking Dead stunt

It is finally revealed that mysterious events around the capital are linked to the launch of AMC from BT’s record-breaking new TV series, Fear the Walking Dead.

Over recent weeks there have been various mysterious events in London, ranging from peculiar footprints on the banks of the River Thames to strange sighting on Parliament Hill.

All the events were linked on social by the words “#somethingscoming’” and the online chatter has now been explained as part of a dramatic launch stunt for the UK premiere of Fear the Walking Dead next Monday and the new AMC channel, launching tomorrow evening (Friday) exclusively to BT customers.

The conclusion of the stunt featured screening checkpoints being set up across London to ensure that no infected persons exit the capital and that ‘the infected’ are contained.

Commuters and tourists at Waterloo Station, Leicester Square, Trafalgar Square and Buckingham Palace were greeted by the E.N.D (Epidemic Neutralisation Department) and scanned for infections.
