A CHINESE takeaway delivery man has admitted he is the mystery figure dressed as Batman who handed an alleged criminal into a police station in the middle of the night.

The CCTV images of Stan Worby, 39, dressed as the Caped Crusader in a Bradford police station went around the world.

But Worby said he is not happy he has been characterised as a chubby crimefighter – protesting he looks overweight in the pictures because he had to wear a tracksuit under the outfit because of the cold.

He was caught on camera at Trafalgar House police station in the centre of the West Yorkshire city handing in his friend, 27-year-old Danny Frayne, who was wanted by police and Mr Worby said he agreed to go with him to the station.

He said: “Obviously it was done as a joke. He [Frayne] wanted to get straight down. Obviously I wanted my bed. It was half-one in the morning.”
