It was a busy day for an unlikely team of superheroes, as they spent a sun-filled afternoon patrolling one lucky village’s streets.

To lighten the mood of lockdown for children – and hero-mad adults – Ryan Dodgson and his partner Sarah Branthwaite called in the help of professionals.

With their son Jaxon in love with all-things-Spiderman, Sarah thought of bringing the magical world of super powers to Frizington – and just like that, Spiderman, Batman and Hogwarts’ own Hagrid turned up on their doorstep.

Wandering the streets, the handful of heroes visited families throughout the village, making lockdown that bit easier for youngsters by introducing them to their idols.

Keeping the two-metre distance, the trio toured the town with one goal – to cheer everyone up.

And putting a toothy grin on each and every youngster’s face in the village was a huge success, with everyone loving the special visit from very super people.

Sarah said: “Thank you to the superheroes for battling on in the hot weather for us!”

As schools in Cumbria remain closed during the coronavirus pandemic, children across the county are missing their friends, and getting out and about in the sun with beloved grandparents.

But the caring duo were thrilled to see everyone's day brightened by spotting their favourite heroes and wizard popping up all around the village.

Ryan said: "We arranged this because it was just something to cheer the kids up with during lockdown.

"I'm so passionate about my village, and it was nice to see something positive happening for everyone."
