Someone from Cumbria Superheroes, a costume company, is now patrolling the streets of Whitehaven dressed as Batman after hearing that many children had been left traumatized by the clowns lurking around their towns.
London police are taking the clown sightings seriously, with Commander Julian Bennett stating:
"We are currently assessing a small number of reported ‘Killer Clown’ incidents in London, three of which meet the threshold of a criminal offense. Our primary responsibility is identifying and investigating those incidents where a criminal offense has occurred. However, anti-social behavior can leave people feeling scared, anxious, and intimidated and I would urge those who are causing fear and alarm to carefully consider the impact their actions have on others."
Crazy clowns beware! The Caped Crusader will knock you down before you know what hit you!
