Minions are everywhere these days. But you wouldn't expect a giant one to jump onto the road and stop traffic in Dublin. But that's what happened!

The 40ft (12m) tall minion escaped from a nearby funfair. The Gardai were called to the Santry area of Dublin at 3pm on Monday. With the help of passers-by they managed to let the air out of the yellow inflatable, a promotional character from the film Minions which began life in the hit animation Despicable Me.
