Fight Against Maturity

Harry Potter fan + traffic cone = Oops!

the Daily Mail


To Charlie Thomas, it must have seemed like a wizard idea.

Spotting a discarded traffic cone, the imaginative three-year-old immediately saw its potential as an impromptu Harry Potter outfit. But after placing it carefully on his head to show his family, the magic soon disappeared.

The plastic cone became firmly stuck and despite the best efforts of the toddler’s parents, it refused to budge. Perhaps a Potter-style cry of ‘Expelliarmus!’ might have helped. But in the end they had to call the fire brigade – and it took a crew of six half an hour to release Charlie using cutting tools and pliers.


PS: He’s fine.
