A man in his forties has been arrested after a small quantity of what is believed to be explosive substance was found at an apartment in Dorset Street in Dublin this morning.

An Army explosive ordnance disposal team attended the scene and a number of houses in the area were evacuated.

Residents have now returned their homes and traffic diversions have been lifted.

The suspect was taken to Mountjoy Garda station and is currently detained under the provisions of Section 30, Offences Against the State 1939 as amended.
