Holy spring-roll, Batman! The crime-fighter, who found fame after CCTV pictures emerged this week of him shopping a wanted man to cops, has been unmasked as Wyke grandfather-of-four Stan Worby.

Stan took friend Daniel Frayne, 27, to Trafalgar House Police Station, Bradford, on February 25 – dressed as Batman.

In typical superhero fashion, Stan leads a double life - as a takeaway delivery-driver.

You’d be forgiven for thinking Stan was prawn-crackers, but the 39-year-old was actually in fancy dress.

The Bradford City fan was watching his beloved Bantams play Swansea in the League Cup final when he got a call from Daniel, who was wanted for fraud-related charges.

Stan said: “Me and my mates decided to dress up for Wembley when we got our tickets. The theme was superheroes. I was Batman, another was Robin, and for some reason, another mate was a monkey.

“On the day of the final, Danny rang me and asked me to take him to the police station. I said I would let him know when I was back.”

It wasn’t until 1.30am that he was able to take Daniel in his ‘batmobile’ – a silver Vauxhall Astra – to hand himself in to the police.

Stan said: “I still had the costume on. I thought to myself, ‘why not? It would be funny to take him in wearing this’. I was going for moral support.”

After checking there was a warrant, the police arrested Frayne, and the friends said 
their goodbyes, shaking hands.

Stan, who picked up the costume from Argos for £25, said: “I’m no superhero. I eat kebabs and the furthest I walk is to my car. But I do think Bradford could do with a superhero.”
