In addition to the other scenes mentioned here, there is a prolonged scene arond the hour and-a-half mark involving a dead sheep. It begins with a close-up of the (bloodless) corpse, but the two characters involved end up cutting open the sheep and eating it raw. This goes on for a couple minutes. After this, near the end of the film, a close-up of a dead rabbit is shown. A girl picks up the corpse and runs around with it, as two boys try to steal it from her.

The film opens with a spider spinning a web. It's presented in a peaceful manner and isn't intended to trigger/scare the viewer.

A cat is shown asphyxiating during a fire storm (the cat was, in reality, dosed with catnip to get it to roll around as if it was dying.)

Mr Kemp is seen attempting to drink whisky which he traded his cigarettes to another man for. It doesn't go too well with radiation sickness.

When the first blast wave hits, people get glass from shattered windows in their eyes.

We see Mr. Kemp vomit from radiation sickness, and Mr. Beckett vomit out of panic.

A character is shown delivering a baby at the end. It's unknown what exactly is wrong with it as the film ends with a close up of the new mother's silent scream.

There is no happy ending. The UK - and modern society - has been obliterated.

Technically, near the end of the film, some corpses are seen hanging in the city ruins. How they got there isn't known.

And it was over a packet of prawn cocktail crisps, beans etc. In other words, looters sentenced to death by firing squad.
