Caped-crusader of Tunbridge Wells

Mysterious caped-crusader of Tunbridge Wells is now revealed at B3TA. The story, featured in a number of major newspapers, was a hoax:

The whole point of local papers is to give that delicious "local angle" - which is a beautiful thing. Every week articles about how the local badger community will be affected by the Gulf war fill me with much glee. Tunbridge Wells is a lovely little area and the thought of a superhero dashing around to return shopping trolleys, change peoples' tyres and hand back purses was just so enticing an idea that it just had to be done.
