Local police have promised to fully investigate reported sightings of ‘crazy/ killer clowns’ amid a frenzy on social media.
The Bonnyrigg Residents Forum on Facebook was inundated with reported sightings of crazy or killer clowns in the town, with residents reportedly taking to the streets of Eldindean to find the perpetrator.
A police spokesman said: “The public can be assured that all reports of attempts to intimidate or frighten people will be thoroughly investigated. Officers have given presentations at primary schools to provide reassurance and advice in response to concerns. Officers have also warned pupils of the potential consequences of engaging in this behaviour.”
