The people of Newry, Mourne & Down areas are rejoicing as Independent Councillor Kevin McAteer has been revealed as Batman.
Batman has been showing up at crime scenes throughout the council district from last June saving the weak and needy and catching the bad guys who were committing crime on our streets.
Police throughout the district were left puzzled as they were called to the scene of crimes and the bad guys would be tied up and waiting for them to come and be arrested.
Survivors of crime would tell police that it was a strange, dark, mysterious figure calling himself ‘Batman’ and then he’d run off and jump in to his car and drive away.
But the Newry Spud can sensationally reveal tonight that the man behind the mask is Councillor McAteer.
We met up with McAteer who prefers to be called Bruce in his secret underground bunker in the Barcroft/Parkhead area. He told us “I just had to do something. I always knew that sitting in the council chamber just wasn’t enough; I had to fight crime on the cold face. I became Batman.”
The PSNI have stated they are delighted to have the Cape Crusader on their side and that the criminal fraternity in Newry will now be shaking in their boots.
On behalf of the people of Newry, Mourne & Down we would like to thank you Batman McAteer, God Speed.
