A mysterious person sporting a clown costume is said to have been spotted cross Lincolnshire, including a suggested sighting in Boston.

The Lincolnshire Clown has a Facebook page and appears to be a copycat of a craze that took off in Northampton earlier this year - where a man popped up across the area dressed as a spooky clown, looking similar to the Pennywise character from the cult Stephen King film, It.

The mystery sparked national attention before the man behind the mask was eventually unveiled as a fun-loving student.

As well as ‘Boston and Wyberton’ reports suggest clown-spottings have occurred in Hykeham, Waddington and Market Rasen.
