Creepy clown who roamed the streets of Halifax to return

EXCLUSIVE: A mysterious clown who roamed the streets of Halifax will return to the streets once again.

The man, who prefers his identity to remain a secret, became popular last year after local residents spotted him going for late night walks.

He was seen and photographed in Halifax town centre, Boothtown, Pellon and Siddal.

He was also sometimes seen holding balloons.

The Halifax clown said: “I once saw a movie where it showed a clown with balloons walking strangely down a street at silly o’clock in the morning. So I inherited a clown suit and decided to go for a walk with it on for a laugh.

“As soon as I got back I noticed it was all over Facebook like an explosion. So I made a page and went for further random walks. The amount of people that would stop their cars and take photos was unbelievable.”

The clown has been busy with ‘commitments’ over the past year, but vows to return to the streets again.

He said: “I’ve got a few costumes but when it gets a little warmer I will go out again.”

If you saw this clown walking about in your area, how would you feel? Let us know in the comments or tweet us @YStandardOnline.

    I hope he’s been looked into. a lot od people have fears and issues with clowns. Not a good thing to be letting happen. Get him doing it for charity then it would be seen as ok till then, maybe he’s distracting the law by his words, when realy he could be up to no good.

      Omg it’s not a crime to walk around in a clown costume
