Sky News published this video item, entitled “StoryCast ’21: Batman Raids Buckingham Palace” – below is their description.

In 2021, Sky News is marking some of the century’s biggest news events through the personal stories of lives defined by unforgettable moments from the last 21 years.

In September 2004, Jason Hatch dressed up in a Batman costume and broke into the grounds of Buckingham Palace.

The Queen’s home is protected by some of the tightest security measures in the world – but they weren’t enough to deter this particular caped crusader, who climbed on the iconic building and made his way to the main balcony. A casual observer might have been forgiven for thinking Batman had stolen into the palace to execute a daring rescue.

But in reality Mr Hatch was risking his life because he hadn’t seen his children in more than eight years – and this superhero dad was set to stage a protest that would soon be beamed around the world.

Would the British establishment bend to the will of Batman?

This is episode 17 of the 21-part series StoryCast ’21. And for more on this story go to www.skynews/storycast21
