Services have this afternoon resumed from Dublin's Heuston Station following major disruption earlier this morning.

A tragic incident on the line between Sallins and Newbridge led to the line being closed this morning for several hours.

Almost all trains out of Heuston station were cancelled as a result.

Buses were arranged to transport passengers over the duration of the disruption.

Services resumed shortly after 1pm however Irish Rail warned there would be knock-on disruption for the rest of the day.

Trains are out of position which could lead to reduction in capacity on some services.
