A “killer clown” craze sweeping Britain has seen Thames Valley Police called to 14 incidents in just one day.
In the space of 24 hours this weekend, Thames Valley Police (TVP) attended 14 reports of people being intimidated or frightened by others dressed as clowns.
Police said the reports have been made across the Thames Valley area including Bracknell, Milton Keynes, Abingdon and Chesham. Gloucestershire Police said it had received six reports of clown-related incidents, while South Wales Police has also attended numerous similar reports.
Earlier this week, Northumbria Police issued an appeal and warning after a series of incidents in Newcastle involving people dressed as clowns jumping out and scaring schoolchildren.
In Essex, two Clacton County High School schoolgirls were approached by two people dressed as clowns who asked them if they wanted to attend a birthday party at 9.20am on Tuesday.A young boy in Suffolk was chased by "several people dressed as clowns" in Beatty Road, Sudbury, at 8pm on Thursday, Suffolk Police said.“In addition, their behaviour is causing multiple reports to our call takers and is tying up police resources which could impact on calls to other incidents.“While we realise that reports of this kind are not restricted to the Thames Valley area, the issues of intimidation, potential arrest and waste of public resources are the same across the country and we would urge people to refrain from such activity.” Nobody has been injured in any of the incidents, police said.Chief Supt Andy Boyd, head of TVP’s neighbourhood policing, said: “While we do not want to be accused of stopping people enjoying themselves, we would also ask those same people to think of the impact of their behaviour on others and themselves.
