Holy Tackle!

‘TACKLING streakers, rescuing a damsel in distress and keeping the population of the tiny English town of Whitley safe – it’s all in a day’s work for Batman And Robin.

But who exactly are these caped crusaders? The Reading Evening Post is appealing for information about the dup who have been spotted several times in recent weeks after they were first seen dealing with a pair of streakers in a local football match.

Michelle Kirby was rescued by the pair who pushed her Peugeot 206 to the nearest petrol station when she ran out of fuel on Easter Sunday. ‘They just appeared,” she said. “I saw them running down the road in Batman and Robin outfits – I was laughing so much. It was like a scene out of Only Fools and Horses and they stayed in character the whole time.

They said, ‘I’m Batman, I’m Robin’ and I said, ‘No, you’re not’ and asked them if they were going to a fancy dress party but they said they were going back to Gotham City.”
