Excited families queued to get a photo of the Batmobile alongside Batman on the day, while rival heroes from the Marvel Cinematic Universe also made an appearance opposite the caped crusader.

The fully working, roadworthy Batmobile comes complete with crime fighting gadgets including a flame thrower at the rear and hydraulic suspension enabling the car to be lifted a further nine inches off the ground.

Batman was joined by his superhero pals Spider-Man, Optimus Prime and Iron Man too.

The comic book heroes walked around Kirkstall Bridge shopping park throughout the day to meet the good citizens of Kirkstall. Can you see yourself or someone you know on our video?
