British anti-terror hunt nets Batman, rat hunter
London, July 6 (IANS) Police have arrested 13 people on terror charges ahead of the London Olympics but also netted two unlikely suspects - a man dressed as Batman and a 71-year-old rat catcher.
The man dressed as Batman was a cinema worker in Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, who was handing out leaflets to the crowd ahead of the the new caped crusader film, The Sun reported.
Police feared he might be a protester among the crowd waiting to see the Olympic torch, but the cinema worker, who did not want to be named, said: "It was over the top".
Meanwhile, in Marlborough, Wiltshire, a gunman ambushed by armed police officers and a police helicopter near a primary school, turned out to be a 71-year-old pensioner hunting rats with an air rifle.
