The 'Bromley Batman' has denied claims that he is a 26-year-old fitness instructor living in the borough.

The Sun reported that the masked crusader, hailed with leaping to the rescue of victims of crime in Bromley, Penge, Lewisham and even Cornwall, was in fact muscle-bound Adnan Tatlicioglu.

Reports came after a source told the national newspaper that the Arsenal fan's “friends are 95 per cent sure it is him.”

News Shopper: Christian Bale as Batman

Christian Bale as Batman - but whose behind the mask in Bromley?

But the masked vigilante, who told News Shopper that he prefers to be known as ‘The Shadow’, denied the links.

He told the Evening Standard: “I fear for this guy who has supposedly been unmasked as me.

"I really have made a lot of enemies and this man doesn't deserve to take the brunt of it."

Mr Tatlicioglu also denied the claims, leaving the mystery of Bromley’s hero unsolved.
