Gardai in Tipperary have warned farmers to check load heights on their traliers following an accident in Tipperary.

"Thankfully, no one was hurt. Always check the height of loads & be aware of restrictions," Gardai said.
Gardai also called on members of the public to ring the Gardaí if they see any unstable loads.
It comes as Gardai said a lorry driver is facing court following an incident on the M1 motorway last weekend.
Meath Traffic Unit attended an incident where an articulated lorry, which had a number of large square bales strapped down on top of loose grain in a tipper trailer.
According to Meath Gardai, the straps came loose and two of the bales fell onto the carriageway, one of them landing on the bonnet of a car.
