CLOWN NEWS: Exclusive Photo proof of yesterday’s Clown encounter in Doncaster.

22 Nov

CLOWN NEWS

Is this the masked fiend that’s taken the mantle of the Woodlands Clown in Doncaster? As you remember I mentioned yesterday, about a sighting just round the corner from us here, and it caused a real hoo-har I can tell you, pretty soon after all the upset, we have managed to get a still of the culprit from the cctv. (it’s the best still I could get, he was running fast so not in the frame for long)

This is a shot taken from the cctv footage of the escaping clown from last night. Alright, it’s not the clearest of images, but you can see that the person seen to run from the scene, wears a distinctive white clown mask. In the video footage (Which I will upload as soon as I convert the format over to a web uploadable one) he shoots off quickly from the scene.

From the looks, all the guy is wearing is a mask, no accompanying costume, and is seen dressed in a padded hooded jacket, and plain white trainers. In a strict sense we can only assume this event as a prank, given that they lacked the whole ensemble of matching clown gear. I would say this person probably is a teen (as they ran away really quick) and that they were between 5’6″ – 5’10 in height. I think that for people in the area of Woodlands, that they don’t have an actual creepy clown, rather a creep in a clown mask! At least if they are going to try doing the whole clown thing, to up their game somewhat, stop being a Tesco value jester, and put some proper effort into it, cheapskate!!

Seriously, wearing just a mask does not qualify as being a “proper” local scary clown! At least plenty of the other cut price pennywise’s go to the effort of actually dressing up for the part, any fool can stick a mask on and scare unsuspecting victims! Close but no cigar.

More clown snippets from the web now, more on other freaky fiends haunting other northern towns…

CLOWN NEWS: South Yorkshire Police speak out about recent clown sightings

21 Nov

CLOWN NEWS

Police quell fears over Doncaster spooky clown ‘sightings’ – The Star.

In this article from the Star newspaper (and online) which states the Safer neighbourhoods team say:

“We are aware that there are a number of reports circulating on social media of a clown being seen on the streets of South Yorkshire.“There have been no actual sightings of a clown reported to police or any crimes committed.”

If this is “true”, then I find it hard to believe that no one has made any reports at all. I think its more likely that they are trying to downplay the clown crisis, just to stop the fear and worry. Methinks a request for information (freedom of information and all that) will be in order, just to see exactly how many reports SYP have recieved about it.

With the uproar of tonights clown sighting around here, not only were paramedics alerted, but also police officers, already with this fact, the statement is already false! Even my mother-in-law rang up to enquire about her concern when the thing started, and I also imagine that others have done so as well! Wait till some old dear gets a shock from a clown and keels over dead? Just harmless fun then is it?

Obviously people are scared, understandably so, its not everyday a costumed psycho taps on your windows dressed as a clown! Yes I know that the rumours are just that, rumours, but no one can deny that somethings going on. the residents round here were almost getting pitchforks and flaming torches to hunt down and lynch the culprit (which in today’s fiasco, there were two occasions to the same place, either the same one or there is another working in pairs etc.)

I still think its just a load of publicity seeking pranksters, scaring folks for fun. But even so, the intent to scare and harass must be considered some type of criminal act? How police can say no crime has occurred is strange, surely tresspass at least, they seem to have no trouble usually making up stuff to charge people with, why not now?

This article here detailing the Grimsby clown is a new one for the list, and a bit more well researched than usual, only thing is if that picture is the actual Scunthorpe clown, he’s not even scary! It’s like Mr Tumble has just raided a charity shop! Admittedly the Market Rasen clown is more creepy, but it seems that at this rate every town and city in the UK will end up with a clown, all you need is some silly fucker with a £19.99 clown outfit and a latex mask off ebay!

CLOWN NEWS: Lincoln, Scunthorpe and Sheffield clowns in the news

21 Nov

So, more clown stuff, rather than give you a description of todays found news, I thought that I’d let the links speak for themselves, and the pics/vids so to speak. New locations and related clown info drifting around the web.

The Lincoln Clown: http://www.scunthorpetelegraph.co.uk/Scary-clown-spotted-Lincoln-Facebook-page/story-20104672-detail/story.html Some whispers on the net claim that this clown was nothing but a local band seeking the news to go viral, again for publicity (if that had been successful, we would know the bands name wouldn’t we!)

The Scunthorpe Clown: http://www.scunthorpetelegraph.co.uk/sinister-looking-clown-roaming-streets-Scunthorpe/story-20099038-detail/story.html and here: http://www.scunthorpetelegraph.co.uk/Good-clown-Scunthorpe-8217-s-sinister-clown/story-20104994-detail/story.html and here: http://www.scunthorpetelegraph.co.uk/xx/story-20100213-detail/story.html

And Sheffieldhttp://forgetoday.com/news/mysterious-locals-spotted-clowning-around-sheffield/ and talk here; http://www.sheffieldforum.co.uk/showthread.php?p=10167865 and Sheffield sightings facebook page https://www.facebook.com/OfficialSheffieldCS

Also pics of the Chesterfield, Sheffield and Retford Clowns.

May or not be the “Rainworth clown” however, while the mask looks similar, the costume doesn’t match.

Taken from the facebook page, dedicated to this creepy clown haunting Sheffield.

I thought I’d add this video of the rainworth clown from youtube, just for comparison to the pic of the Chesterfield clown, as you see, the costume differs, so I would still say these are still two different, if not unrelated clowns (jesus, I can’t believe I’m seriously writing this!)

This is a new one, the Retford clown, looks kinda like a zombie Ronald MacD.

Plus a shot of the purported Retford clown, a zombified version of Mr macD, I’d heard a few rumours of Retford’s clown, but I suppose this is confirmation it’s true.

As we speak, literally while I’m typing there’s been a sighting in my area, a kid has just seen a clown, and it’s scared her senseless and is getting treated for shock right now. I must tell you that even so I’m not too fazed by one of these costumed freaks, just hearing lots of uproar and uncertainty in case someones lurking around my area, it’s still really unsettling. My kids are pretty freaked right now (Plus they’re only little ones, so they are borderline from really throwing a big panic if anyone upsets them now they have heard there’s a scary clown about) I’ll get more info about this as soon as possible.

For those out there who normally come here for other content that’s non-clown related, please do not fear, I’ll be back to normal service soon, providing these bloody clowns don’t spread further…

Right where’s my bat…
