'The Beast' Beached

By Gerard @presurfer

It's one of the most protective cars in the world. It's bomb-proof, it has bullet-proof glass, and its own oxygen supply. But a teeny weeny ramp at the US Embassy in Dublin caused the President's car to 'beach', causing the crowds waiting outside to gasp in surprise.
The low bottom of the car, nicknamed 'The Beast' because of its bomb-proof features, seemed to catch on a ramp crossing over the gateway. US security services later denied it was 'The Beast' that got stuck, saying 'it was a spare limo, carrying staff and support personnel.'
