Gardai have today arrested a male in his mid-teens in connection with a fire at Dawn Paper and Tissue Manufacturing, in Drogheda, Co Louth.

This is the fourth arrest in connection with the alleged arson attack.

He is being detained under the provisions of Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984 at Dundalk Garda Station.

The factory employed 22 people and the damage is believed to have cost in excess of €1million.
