The new pictures and footage obtained by the Chronicle & Echo show the clown emerging from a lake in Abington Park.

The timing of the pictures appears to have coincided with the arrival on stage of Madness, who were playing a gig at Northamptonshire County Cricket Ground, just a few hundred yards away from the park.

In the footage the clown can be seen in the water, surrounded by balloons, slowly waving at the camera.

It is the first video footage that has been obtained of the Northampton Clown, whose identity still remains a mystery.

The Northampton Clown, who wishes to remain anonymous, told the Chronicle & Echo that he was planning to continue making appearances in the town.

In an exclusive interview with the Chronicle & Echo last week the clown said he wanted people to see it as a bit of “harmless fun”.

The Northampton Clown now has more than 160,000 likes on his Spot Northampton’s Clown Facebook page and the story has been featured on CNN, BBC World Service, national TV and radio stations in Canada, Australia, Ireland and Germany.

The Northampton Clown said he had received more than 1,000 death threats sent to the message inbox of his Facebook page.
