‘Killer clowns’ reportedly spotted in Edinburgh
One was arrested in Newcastle with a knife yesterday
Creepy “killer clowns” have allegedly been spotted around Edinburgh.
The craze, which started on college campuses in the US, has now apparently spread to UK soil.
According to reports, the clowns have been sighted jumping out of bushes and chasing pedestrians down the street.
Elsewhere in the UK, clown sightings have been rife in Newcastle, prompting Northumbria Police to issue a statement last night.
It said: “Tonight, officers have arrested a teenage boy in Blakelaw in possession of a bladed article in connection with one of such clown incidents.
“This arrest should act as a clear warning to others who are actively seeking to cause distress and potentially harm others.
“This behaviour will not be tolerated by Northumbria Police and extra officers will be on hand to offer reassurance and catch those responsible for any criminal offences which have taken place.”
Now the trend seems to have spread to Edinburgh, and people are not happy.
