He emerged from the flat around an hour and a half later, after the all clear was given by his friends, he walked a short distance to the car park, posed for a few pictures taken by his friends on their phones.
But he was forced to confess to journalists working for the Sunday People that he was indeed the Northampton clown.
He said: "OK, I am the clown but I’ve been trying to keep it as mysterious as possible. To be discreet so people didn’t find out.

So there it is folks, he's not a terrifying monster likely to be found under your bed, he's actually quite a nice guy...
