Video of giant Minion attack emerges
A large inflatable of a yellow movie character caused chaos on the roads of North Dublin on Monday, when it broke free from a nearby fairground.
Video footage of the 'Minion' attack was captured by a motorist and shared online. The balloon was estimated to be about 10 metres high, the Irish Examiner reported.
Eyewitnesses shared photos of the bizarre scene on social media.
Dublin Councillor Paul McAuliffe has criticised the lapse in safety behind the odd incident.
"[It] may at first glance seem like a humorous social media story. However it could have led to a far more serious incident," McAuliffe told the Irish Examiner.
"I have referred the matter to Dublin City Council's planning enforcement department to investigate if the inflatable cartoon character was the subject of any planning regulation and to question as to whether operators had implemented the appropriate health and safety measures."
