'Batman' who handed in wanted man to Bradford police had dressed up for the Capital One Cup Final
THE 'batman' who handed in a wanted man at a police station in Bradford had just come back from the Capital One Cup Final against Swansea at Wembley.
The man, now unmasked as 39-year-old Stan Worby, had been dressed as Batman while at the Wembley match, which Swansea won 5-0. The takeaway delivery driver said he was gobsmacked that his exploits had been covered by media worldwide.
Mr Worby and his friend, Daniel Frayne 27, walked into Trafalgar House Police Station in the early hours of February 25.
Mr Frayne, of Buttershaw, had been wanted in connection with a number of offences. He was later charged with handling stolen goods and fraud-related offences and will appear before magistrates on Friday.

Mr Worby said he had donned the Batman costume for the game and decided not to get changed before taking his friend to the police station.
He told ITV's Daybreak: "Obviously it was done as a joke. 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."
He said he was annoyed that his paunch looked big when he saw pictures of him in the Batman suit.
Mr Worby, who is from the Wyke area of Bradford, said: "I've got my full tracksuit underneath. I'm not just wearing this (the costume) - it's too thin."
