While driving towards Corporation Road, Rhys Williams and Gwen Cooper witnessed a police car crash down Bradford Street. Visible in the light from the headlights of their Saab, Gwen and Rhys realised the street was swarming with zombies which were converging on the car's unconscious occupants.
One of the zombies caused Rhys to skid out of control and crash the Saab into a line of parked cars. The residents of the street left their homes to see what the commotion was, and one - an elderly woman - ended up with her throat torn out by the zombie hoard. Gwen instructed the residents to remain inside, then she and Rhys escaped on foot, unable to save the occupants of the police car. (PROSE: Bay of the Dead)
Behind the scenes Edit
Bradford Street exists in the real world, and is indeed located in Grangetown, a short distance from Corporation Road. However, the description of Bradford Street in Bay of the Dead does not match that of its real world counterpart; while in the book, the street is described as being lined with suburban houses with front gardens, in the real world, the street is lined with terraced houses adjacent to the pavement.
