A teenager is in a serious condition in hospital after he was struck by a van in Dublin city centre this afternoon.

Emergency services were called to the scene at Memorial Road, near the Custom House in Dublin City centre shortly before 1pm today.

The 19-year-old pedestrian was taken by ambulance to the Mater Hospital but has since been moved to Beaumont Hospital.

His condition is described as "serious".

The van driver was also taken to the Mater Hospital but his injuries are believed to be minor.

Amiens St was partially closed for around two hours this afternoon to deal with the incident. There were major traffic delays as a result.

Diversions were put in place for Amiens Street via Sheriff Street and traffic was slow from Ormond Quay on the North Quays.
