Rail passengers on several lines are facing delays due to separate incidents this morning.

The Westport/Heuston train has been delayed by 25 minutes after a passenger in Newbridge required medical attention. An ambulance was called and the train has now moved on.

Meanwhile, there is also a delay on the Tralee/Heuston line after anti-social behaviour on board a train caused a 25 minute delay. A man was removed from the train after gardai were called due to alleged "drunken and abusive" behaviour. The train is now en route again according to Irish rail.

Elsewhere, traffic is heavy on the m50 after a collision on the M50 between junction seven Lucan and Junction nine which has been cleared.
