Both bores of the tunnel were closed as a result of the incident that occurred shortly after 6pm.

It is understood that a truck blew part of its engine while travelling through the tunnel.

Emergency services including several units from the Dublin Fire Brigade responded to the scene.

Dublin City Council said that the HGV ban was not lifted while the incident is ongoing.

Traffic was diverted to East Wall Road while the road was being cleared.

The incident has now been dealt with but traffic disruption is likely tonight.
