Apparently unshaken by the latest death of his sidekick in the eternal fight against evil, a man dressed as Batman showed up in the British city of Bradford last week doing what he does best: continuing his war on crime. The Batman in question walked into Bradford’s Trafalgar House police station on February 25 to deposit a man wanted for questioning on suspicion of handling stolen goods and fraud-related offenses, according to a statement from the West Yorkshire police. They described the incident on their Facebook page:

This post is meant as a bit of a light hearted news.
