Southbound DART services are experiencing a delay due to a 'medical emergency' on board.

The Howth to Greystones DART was stopped at Kilbarrack this morning when a passenger fell ill.

Emergency services were called to the scene and the passenger was taken to hospital by ambulance.

A spokesperson for Irish Rail said the passenger's condition is not yet known but it is not thought to be life-threatening.

As a result of the emergency, DART services were running on the single line between Howth Junction and Killester for a short period this morning.

Both lines have now been opened but Irish Rail has warned that the southbound service is currently experiencing a 20-minute delay.
