A giant, inflatable Minion was detached from its station in Dublin, causing accident and heavy traffic.
The Irish Times said, “the Minion was on display to advertise a local fair when it blew away ‘during a particularly windy spell'”.

The 33-foot inflatable creature then tumbled onto a busy street and damaged a car, knocking off its rearview mirror.
McAuliffe told the Irish Times, “I don’t want to sound like a killjoy, but if that had landed on a cyclist, for instance, it could have been serious. If you take the Minion part of it out, if this was a large inflatable weather balloon that had not been properly tethered, there would be no humour in this story at all.”
He also told the publication that he had already reported the incident to the City Council’s planning enforcement department. He wants them to investigate if the fair was actually abiding planning measures, as well as other health and safety regulations.
