'Shaun' pub to be demolished

Zombie location will become flats

The London pub where Simon Pegg fought his last stand against an army of zombies in Shaun Of The Dead is to be turned into a block of flats.

The run-down Duke Of Albany pub in New Cross, South-East London, stood in for Pegg's fictional local, The Winchester, in the 2004 zom-com, but it has stood empty for more than two years.

Now developers are set to move in, as Kang Properties has been given permission to demolish part of the building and erect seven flats.
