A 30-year-old man has been arrested after a woman was chased through a park in Norwich by someone dressed as a clown.
The victim was walking alone through Eaton Park around 8.30pm yesterday.
The clown screamed and ran after her before she managed to get away. The craze appears to have been inspired by clown-related pranks in the US and has seen a string of copycat incidents across the country.
Police said a man had been arrested in connection with a public order offence.
Whilst this craze may seem harmless, it is actually quite frightening to those who experience it. It will not be tolerated and anyone caught with the intention of causing alarm, harassment or distress will be dealt with robustly.
I would like to reassure members of the public that we are increasing patrols in the area and that my teams have been briefed about this subject.
Luton based Monarch Airlines has negotiated a twelve day extension to its operating licence with the Civil Aviation Authority within hours of its deadline.
The company which employs nearly 3,000 people at its base at Luton Airport had until midnight (30th September/1st October) to reach an agreement to extend its ATOL licence if it was to continue selling package holidays.
The airline thanked the CAA and says it's also secured new funding and is close to announcing the largest investment in its 48 year history.
Monarch now has until October 12th to secure its funding, then it's likely it will have its licence renewed for the usual twelve months.
I am delighted that we have been able to come to an agreement with the CAA on the extension of Monarch's ATOL licence and am excited about the additional capital coming into the group which will help us fund our future growth. I am immensely proud of the professionalism of the Monarch team.
Monarch continues to fly and says it looks forward to welcoming customers onboard.

Norfolk County Council has been criticised for the way it treated foster carers and some of the children they were looking after.
An independent review was set up in 2015 to investigate a series of complaints made by foster carers in the county.
Some carers have now been given written apologies and the council says lessons have been learned.
What this has helped us to identify is some particular weaknesses around the way we dealt with children in foster care, the foster carers themselves to learn some lessons and put them right.
Emergency crews will get 'stuck in the mud' today as part of a rescuing exercise.

A 31-year-old man from Northamptonshire has been jailed for the sexual abuse of a girl under the age of 13.
Gavin McCarthy, from Cransley near Kettering, was sentenced to eight years for six counts of making indecent images of children.
He'll remain on the Sex Offender Register for life.
I hope the substantial sentence McCarthy received today helps serve as a deterrent to offenders and those considering sexual offending against vulnerable children.
We are committed to safeguarding children by detecting abuse and prosecuting offenders.
A 52-year-old man who robbed a bank in Cambridge, by handing over a crumpled note saying 'This is a bank robbery', has been jailed for six years.
Brian Murphy demanded more than £6,000 from a cashier at the Natwest bank in Market Street, unaware the staff member slipped a pack of red-dye into the bundles of cash.
Murphy was later traced spending the cash in a casino in Great Yarmouth and found guilty of robbery following a two-day trial at Cambridge Crown Court.
“The red-dye pack was key to identifying Murphy and the cashier showed true bravery while being threatened by him.
Murphy was desperate to obtain money by whatever means and refused to account for his actions throughout the investigation and trial.
A Suffolk man who has autism will find out later if he'll be extradited from Britain to stand trial over charges of cyber-hacking.
Lauri Love, who's 31 and from Stradishall near Haverhill, is alleged to have stolen huge amounts of data from US agencies including the federal Reserve, Nasa and the FBI.
Mr Love has said he holds little hope of justice if he is extradited, and suggested a jail term in the US could cause his health to deteriorate and would lead to a mental breakdown or suicide.
He and his family want him to face justice in the UK rather than the US.
A judge will hand down the ruling at Westminster Magistrates' Court this afternoon.
"I don't think that any humane person would send someone to the US prison system, especially someone who is not from America and has never been there."
