Folk are being urged not to panic after a picture showing a creepy clown stalking the streets of Chesterfield resurfaced on social media.

The snap, which was recently posted on Twitter by the Unexplained World account, has been shared by more than 2,500 fraught people.

However, there is no need for alarm – as the picture was actually taken last November.

Old pictures and posts often resurface on social media sites, causing unnecessary panic.

The Unexplained World tweet says: “A clown in Chesterfield has been spotted standing in roads in the middle of the night all week.”

In one of the many responses, a user says: “I would die if I saw that.”

Another says: “If that clown comes to America I’m moving to the North Pole.”

However, one man points out: “Keep up, that was about 1,600 years ago.”
