A concerned driver called the cops early in the morning after believing that what he has seen was a man assaulting and biting a woman on the M62 between Manchester and Liverpool, in northern England, on Sunday evening.
Officers quickly tracked the car down close to junction 11 near Birchwood, but when they pulled it over, were surprised to find a man and a woman in zombie make-up.
A spokeswoman for Greater Manchester Police said: “We got a call to reports of a man biting a woman on the M62 at junction 11 and being assaulted.
“Officers were sent out to search for the vehicle as it is a serious incident.
“But when they found the car in question, they saw they were covered in fake blood.
“Thankfully the man and woman were extras on their way to a job and it was a funny ending really.”
Officers let the couple go on their way, but not before asking them to pose for a photo. It’s not known which television show or movie the duo was working on.
North West Motorway Police tweeted: “Report of female being assaulted on M62, vehicle stopped pair of extras making to a job – posing as Zombies – takes all sorts.”
