Rush hour for drivers in Dublin yesterday was made much worse after a giant inflatable Minion toppled over in the middle of the road.
Erin Van Londen said she was stuck in a 15-minute traffic jam because the 40ft blow-up version of the character Kevin, from the film Despicable Me, was blocking Old Swords Road in Santry yesterday afternoon.
Strong winds, she said, had knocked the over Minion over.
Many motorists were caught in the traffic jam until the inflatable was eventually wheeled away by a local business.
These were the best reactions:
