    not a euphemism, apparently, but it’s that sort of detail that brings stories like this to life. I now have visions of a Smurf and various super heroes throwing Andrex at some oik who’s replying with a barrage of wet wipes.

    A group of people dressed as Batman, Robin, David Hasselhoff and a Smurf helped police officers catch a criminal in an East Lothian supermarket.

    A man dressed as Robin was on Eskview Road in Musselburgh when he was assaulted just before 20:00 on Friday.

    He and his friends, who were all in fancy dress, called police before chasing the attacker into Tesco.

    After a scuffle in the toilet roll aisle, a 21-year-old man was arrested. He later pled guilty in court.
    ‘Sorry Tesco’

    The incident came to light after East Lothian Police tweeted about it, thanking the fancy-dressed group for their help.

    One Tweet read: “Thank you to Batman, Robin, Robin’s Dad, a Smurf, and the Hoff for helping us on Friday night. #Tesco, sorry about the toilet roll aisle.”

    Another Tweet by police officers in East Lothian read: “Robin assaulted, police called, collective assisted our foot chase, minor upset to shelving in Tescos during arrest, you couldn’t script it!”

    A Police Scotland spokesman said: “A 21-year-old man was arrested and charged in connection with an assault in Eskview Road, Musselburgh, on Friday 1 November.

    “He was remanded in custody until Monday 4th November, where he appeared in court and pled guilty to the offence.”
