VIDEO: Prison van gets stuck under bridge in Dublin

Footage has appeared online showing a prison van stuck under a low bridge on Dublin’s Erne Street.

The clip, which has been viewed on social media more than 48,000 times, was shot at 6:30pm yesterday evening.

"They were there for over an hour trying to get the van out," a witness told Sunday World.

The footage shows a member of the prison service hopping out of the van to deflate the tyres while another officer waves passing traffic on.

A spokesman from the prison service said: "The matter is under investigation by the prison service and the gardai."

Gardai confirmed there were no inmates in the prison van at the time.
