Clowns in a black van chase two schoolgirls in Essex
The creepy prankster clowns have been spotted in Essex.
A couple of schoolgirls were approached by two of them while walking to Clacton County High School on Tuesday morning.
The clowns, who were travelling in a black van, apparently asked the youngsters if they wanted to go to a birthday party.
‘No attempts were made to grab or harm the girls,’ a police spokesman said after confirming they had been contacted shortly after the incident at 9.20am.
