Breaking News ! A mysterious Star Wars character has been captured on camera lurking around Burntwood. Dubbed the 'Burntwood Jawa', the mystical figure was spotted milling around an island on Rugeley Road, late on Saturday night (February 20). Garreth Meeson, a student at Walsall College, was stunned when he came across the 'Jawa' and told his brother - sat in the passenger seat of his car - to record it on his phone. Speaking to Black Country Live, the 18-year-old said: "I saw it on Rugeley Road and I thought what the hell is that. I saw it out of the corner of my eye, but I didn't approach him and I stayed in the car, just in case he did anything stupid. "I wasn't scared, I've never heard of him before and I didn't know what it was. I've never seen anything like it before that's why I was sceptical about it.
