A biohazard warning symbol will be projected onto the cliffs
A "biohazard" warning symbol projected onto Dover's white cliffs will mark a film launch across the UK.

Kent's famous landmark is being used because it features in the movie, 28 Weeks Later - a sequel to 28 Days Later which was in cinemas five years ago.

In the first film, a deadly virus wipes out England but in the sequel it turns out the bug is not yet destroyed.

28 Days Later, from director Danny Boyle, received 3.2m in lottery cash and became a cult hit in the UK.

It was hailed by the UK Film Council as proof that a new method of awarding lottery money worked - with film-makers themselves helping decide which projects were likely to appeal to audiences.

The launch in Kent on Friday was set to take place 28 days ahead of the sequel's release.
