Newcastle hospital and schools on alert over 'killer clowns' threat
A hospital has been put on alert after it was named as a target for a group dubbing themselves ‘killer clowns’.
Circulating online, the posters posing as clown-suited pranksters have created a list of so-called targets across the North East.
And on the Instagram account ‘Killer Clowns North East’, a message states members plan to “hit” the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle.
In a statement, the hospital said: “An email to all staff was sent informing them to be vigilant and report any suspicious activity to site security staff.
