A man who hit the headlines when he dressed as Batman to take a friend to cops has appeared in court charged with burglary.

Stan Worby, 39, from Wyke, and his friend Daniel Frayne, 28, both pleaded not guilty to one count of burglary at Bradford Magistrates’ Court today (Friday).

The pair are accused of breaking into a garage and stealing power tools - including a grinder and a bit set along with various other items - worth around £770.

Magistrates heard that the offence was alleged to have happened at around 4am on Sunday, April 14.

Attending police officers called to the area in Bradford stopped a vehicle the defendants were in and when officers looked inside they allegedly found items connected with the burglary.

The court heard that all items stolen have since been recovered.

Both men will have to appear at court again - Frayne, formerly of Bradford but now of Cleethorpes, is to appear for trial at Bradford Magistrates Court on July 17.

Worby is to appear at Bradford Magistrates Court on June 21 to have his case committed to crown court for trial.

Both defendants were granted bail.
