A team of fire fighters rushed to Dublin's quays after a concerned citizen reported a body in the Liffey, which ended up being nothing but a tree trunk.

The fire brigade was sent to the Jeanie Johnston on Custom House Quay after the report came in.

"Move along, nothing to see here," one of the firemen joked after the mistake became clear.
