A spokesman for Essex Police said: “We are aware there is a suggestion on social media of clowns planning on visiting schools as part of this current craze.

“We would like to reiterate our previous message that people involved in this may commit offences under the Public Order Act 1986 and could find themselves being arrested.

“We would urge people to be considerate of the feelings of others, especially young children and the elderly.

“We also understand how this craze, which is becoming prominent on social media, is causing some people alarm and distress.

“Following this information relating to schools we will be liaising with them to provide reassurance.

"Anyone who has any information about any activity which is being planned is asked to contact police on 101.”
