Britain’s mysterious caped crusader has been identified as Stan Worby, a 39-year-old takeaway delivery man.

The revelation came a day after police in Bradford, northern England, released CCTV pictures of a figure in an ill-fitting Batman costume accompanying a 27-year-old burglary suspect into a police station.

‘Batman’ then disappeared into the night, leaving police scratching their heads.

It has now been revealed that Stan Worby had not been on a crime-fighting crusade – he had simply agreed to accompany a friend to the police station to offer him moral support – and had decided to wear the costume as a joke.

Mr Worby says he has been “gobsmacked” by all the attention.
