DART services have been suspended between two south Dublin stations due to a truck hitting a level crossing.

DART services between Dun Laoghaire and Pearse Street stations were suspended at around 5pm today.

The incident happened at a level crossing at Sandymount.

A spokesperson for Iarnród Eireann said: "There's damage to the [level crossing] barrier and the pillar for the barrier, so we have to replace the barrier. We have to make sure it's protected to cross."

"They've just cleared the barrier over the line. Now it's a matter of putting protection in place so hopefully it'll be done in the next half hour or so," he added.

Iarnrod Eireann says Dublin Bus are currently honouring rail tickets.
