The men allegedly stole the bin lorry at Deansrath Green in Clondalkin, Dublin, at around 9am.

They then drove the lorry around Dublin – narrowly avoiding pedestrians and almost losing control, according to witnesses.

The two men were later arrested on Westbrook Drive when the lorry crashed at 9.40am – some 40 minutes after the incident started.

A video posted by John King to Facebook has been viewed over 50,000 times.

A garda spokesman confirmed the two men are currently being detained at Clondalkin Garda Station and inquiries are continuing.
