A MAN has been arrested after a Jaguar car ploughed through a shop front in Co Dublin this afternoon.

The incident happened at around 1.30pm at C&T Superstore in Skerries.

Dave Morris, who was delivering greeting cards to the store at the time, said it is a miracle nobody was injured.

"It's incredibly lucky nobody was injured. Originally I thought the shelving in the shop had collapsed," he told Independent.ie.

"I looked around and saw one of the staff running and screaming. There was about 15 people in the shop as it was really busy. I looked to see if anyone was injured or hurt but thankfully nobody was.

"I am feeling very shook at the moment after looking back at the photos. The staff were amazing though."

A garda spokesman said a man in his 40s has been arrested in connection with the incident.

"Investigations are ongoing," he added.

Members of Dublin Fire Brigade also attended the scene.
