Police investigate 'creepy clown' sighting at school...but it was something very different
Police were called to a primary school after children claimed they saw a 'creepy clown' - but it turned out to be a curly-haired woman.
Officers were sent to Kew Woods primary school in Southport at 1.20pm today.
An eyewitness said: "It was just a woman with curly hair!
"She was only putting things into the boot of her car. Poor woman.
"You know what kids are like - one says something and it spreads like wildfire."
A spokesperson for Merseyside Police said: "We attended the scene around 1.30pm, to find it was a woman putting shopping into her car."
