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: 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…

CLOWN NEWS: Mansfield Clown identified as the Rainworth clown, could be circus hoax?

20 Nov

Northampton clown says he is ‘glad’ to have inspired Mansfield clown as speculation continues | Nottingham Post.

So, i think we’ve worked out something about the mysterious clown in this picture. This is the Rainworth Clown, the clown pretender to that of the Northampton clown’s place as hot property. You’ll see in the above article that the Northampton clown is pleased he inspired this publicity stunt for a visiting circus, and that the clown in the picture is even a woman!

I’d heard its name mentioned, but failed to see this from last week. Also they have a page over on facebook:  https://www.facebook.com/Rainworthsclownpage

Could the other numerous sightings be part of a big publicity stunt for a travelling circus? With new sightings of a clown in more areas of Doncaster (Intake, Cantley and Balby) and York, Bolton and Burnley, you could say that this seems to be mainly a Northern phenomenon, could there be a big coordinated effort for some huge publicity stunt?

Please keep the info coming in, and thanks too everyone who’s come forward with news (Unknown, Joanne and Laura)

Updated Sightings list:

Doncaster and surrounding areas;

Further sightings of mystery clowns in the following additional areas:

  • Sheffield
  • Rotherham

  • Burnley
  • Confirmed and documented sightings in Chesterfield and Mansfield (The Rainworth Clown)

More updates when more news comes.

Beep beep everybody!

We all float down here: Tales of Northampton’s creepy clown!

19 Sep

Some of you might not be aware of a social media buzz about a strange clown that’s seen about parts of Northampton in the last week. He doesn’t speak, just waves and generally creeps people out! No one knows who he is, or where he comes from, and thus the mystery widens… Thinking this whole business has been just speculation and nothing more than urban myth, finally the clown has spoken out over facebook about just where he’s going to be out and around the area, and a few pics of him have surfaced that prove him to be real.

As you can imagine, lots of people aren’t happy about a freaky clown stalking the place (mosty at night if I might add, to make matters worse) and are crapping themselves, some even wanting to beat him (or her) up.

What is this clowns agenda? Why is he doing it? Who is it behind the facepaint? No one seems to know.

I’m in the same boat as them as far as weird clowns are concerned. I wouldn’t say I find them that scary, but if I saw him in a dark alley waving at me, I’d be thinking about smacking him for sure. There’s nothing saying he’s doing wrong, but just “Why?” What’s the point?

Lots of people I know are Caulrophobic (scared of clowns) and given that one of the points, long ago clowns were symbols to scare away evil spirits, they give tons of folk the heebee geebees. He must know what he’s doing is causing fear even though he’s not doing anything illegal.

Again another hoaxer out to get 15 minutes of fame.

(If you read the source article link below, make sure you read the Northampton newspaper’s editors article too, showing some love for the clown!)

I’ll keep you posted on the matter, but please feel free to get in touch if you spot him or know anything about him, I’d be more than happy to do an interview (Mr Clown, that is if you read this!)
