Exploding fireworks caused panic amongst residents in the north-inner city this afternoon.

Locals in the Ballybough area reported a number of loud bangs, sparking fears of another gangland related incident in an area that has seen four murders in the last three months.

Gardai responded to the scene within a short period of time, but the incident has since been described as a 'false alarm' with no shots being fired.
