The Dark Knight 'saves' Cambridge
A real life Batman, complete with cardboard Batcycle and voice-driven sound effects, has been roaming the streets of Cambridge, racking up over 250k YouTube hits in the process.

The stunt was staged by Robson Thompson, a filmmaker responsible for a series of real life movie spoofs on his YouTube channel.
Whilst his previous efforts covered such film classics as The Shining, Back to the Future and Die Hard, they didn't quite reach the viral heights of his Dark Knight parody.
Robson was clearly surprised by his newfound popularity as he posted on Twitter saying, "Just wow."
The video has received coverage worldwide, from American television and Empire magazine to the Huffington Post.
