On a happier note

Batman and Robin have apparently moved to the English countryside.

Michelle Kirby, from Whitley, was stranded in Whitley Wood Lane when her Peugeot 206 ran out of petrol on Easter Sunday.
But our Batman and Robin appeared out of nowhere to save the day and push her car to the nearest petrol station.

“They just appeared. I saw them running down the road in Batman and Robin outfits — I was laughing so much,” she said. “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.”

After seeing Miss Kirby to safety, the pair disappeared along Basingstoke Road.
And Whitley Wood man Ray Cox, 61, spotted the caped crusaders at about 11.30am after doing his morning shopping.

“I said to my wife, ‘It would make it a better and safer place with these men’,” he said.
