What is it with Evil Clowns in the UK lately?
A police force has told members of the public to ignore people dressed as clowns if they meet them in the street. Norfolk police received a report from a member of the public alarmed by a clown sighting in Gaywood, near King's Lynn, on Tuesday evening. The suspect was described as wearing a "full clown outfit" with a red suit and red hair.
The following evening the force received a similar report after two clowns were spotted near a skate park in the town. These people wore "Halloween-type" clown masks. In both cases, the callers reported being alarmed and being chased a short way up the road. […] Officers would patrol areas where the reports had been made and, if they found any clowns, they would "offer them strong words of advice", he said. "Firstly I'd like to stress that it isn't against the law to dress up as a clown."
