It was a cracking yarn until the truth was unmasked about the Batman-dressed crusader who took a wanted man into a Bradford Police station – turns out he was keeping his mate company as he turned himself in for a number of offences.
The Batman was named as Stan Worby, 39, who went with his friend Daniel Frayne, 27, to Trafalgar House Police Station early in the morning on February 25.
Worby, a takeaway delivery driver, revealed he’d been to London for the Capital One Cup final between Bradford and Swansea and dressed as the superhero for a laugh.
His friend, Frayne, was wanted by police and Worby went with him as he turned himself in - Franyne was then charged with handling stolen goods and offences relating to fraud.
"Obviously it was done as a joke,” he told Daybreak on ITV. “He (Mr Frayne) wanted to get straight down. Obviously I wanted my bed. It was half-one in the morning.
"At the end of the day it was a practical joke, just between me and Daniel."
For a bloke dressed in a Batman suit in a cop shop at 1am, Worby was surprisingly vain about his starring role in yesterday’s news bulletins, admitting he looked a bit more chubby than he’d like.
"I've got my full tracksuit underneath. I'm not just wearing this [the costume] - it's too thin," he said.
