Published at 12:21pm 13th October 2016.

Batman is using his powers of good to go on the hunt for the so-called “killer clowns”.

The craze has swept the nation, with many sightings in Cornwall becoming a growing concern.

One mother told Pirate FM that a clown was hanging around outside their children’s school.

While another parent was shocked when a clown almost sent a little girl plunging onto a rail line.

Meanwhile in Cumbria, a man is dressing up as Batman to reassure local children they are in no harm.

Photos of the superhero has been shared online - one showing him chasing off a clown in the dark.

The superhero also posted a video on Facebook writing:

“Please reassure you’re kids are safe, they only know what you tell them #clownsaregood.”

In the video he says: “As for you clowns, if you want to scare someone why don’t you try scare me.”

The video has been shared nearly 300 times.

Viewers commented their relief, knowing Batman has it covered.

One person writes: “No need to be scared anymore. Batman’s on the case.”

While another person said: “You ought to be the coolest person on earth at the moment.”

Julie posts: “I’m in love. I feel safe now.”

One child posts to Batman, thanking him for his work…

“I seen my mammy Facebook that you caught the clown, this means I can go to school and not be scared thank you for your efforts…”
