Stockport Spider-Men keep kids entertained during lockdown

Two men in Stockport have been delighting neighbourhoods by dressing as Spider-Man while on their daily exercise outdoors.

Known as the Stockport Spider-Men, sightings of the superhero during the coronavirus lockdown have been entertaining children and family alike.

Jason Baird, 34, from Manchester, runs Jason Baird’s Black Belt Academy in Stockport.

He said his colleague Andrew started the craze by dressing up as the beloved character on a live video call to some of their students.

The next day Andrew went around his estate in the same costume, so Mr Baird decided to help out by borrowing an outfit from one of his friends.

The pair now going on their daily runs dressed as their alter-egos, with requests for stop-offs coming in droves on their Facebook group.
