Motorists' Minion Madness

August 12, 2015

A giant inflatable Despicable Me minion caused havoc in traffic in Ireland after it broke free from its ropes on a windy afternoon.

The balloon character was being used as advertising at a fairground on the Swords Road. Over 10 metres tall, the minion fell into oncoming traffic and clipped the wings of a car.

Police say the incident was have appeared funny to those watching the giant balloon blow around but say that it could have caused a serious accident.

The council is looking into the incident to determine how the balloon managed to make it onto the road and how they can prevent similar situations in the future.
