A creepy clown has been seen lurking on Chesterfield’s streets, leaving frightened social media users fraught.

The arrival of the ‘Chesterfield Clown’ comes just a week after one was spotted in Mansfield and a few months after the ‘Northampton Clown’ made headlines around the world.

According to internet reports, the clown has been seen outside Cineworld on Derby Road and in parts of Tupton, Hasland and Brimington.

One user, Racheal Stapleton-Hailwood, said: “Seen photo on my son’s Facebook account, definitely at Cineworld Chesterfield.”

Sean Saxton, added: “Is it the same one that’s terrorising Mansfield?”

But not everyone is pleased with the clown’s sudden arrival.

Keri Waller, said: “A girl has reported on Facebook that someone dressed as a clown has knocked on her window! Where is the fun in that? I honestly think its frightening, and it’s proven in the last few hours that it’s getting out of control. People need to think about their actions before wandering streets & frightening people in their own homes!”
