Scary clowns coming to the GC

The clowns are back...

Those scary clowns that caused lots of drama for police last year are making a comeback.

Clown Purge Australia has announced on Facebook that the fad is revisiting a number of Queensland towns this week, including the Gold Coast, Brisbane, Cairns and the Fraser Coast.

It's enough to give you nightmares, coinciding with the release of the new version of Stephen King's It in cinemas last week.
