There has been a fight-back against the 'killer clown' craze, as police received a call from a man in Peterborough who said he punched one in the face.

The man told officers he was walking along George Street in Woodston on Monday morning when a man jumped out in front of him wearing a clown mask and possibly had something in his hand.

The man said he then punched him in the face. He called police later that night to report concern for safety in the area.

Police across the region have been issuing warnings to people they may be committing public order offences by dressing up as 'killer clowns' and scaring or threatening people.
