However despite the hysteria these reported sightings have caused online they remain unverified, and it has yet to be confirmed that any ‘Killer Clowns’ have been seen in the Southampton area.

The ‘Killer Clown’ craze has spread throughout England after starting on American Campuses, it is supposed that people who dress up as clowns do so as a joke to scare civilians or children. However police departments across England have warned perpetrators that they are not amused by the pranks and they will not be tolerated.
