Red Line services have been closed between the Blackhorse and Heuston Station stops after a person was reportedly struck by the Luas.

Gardai and emergency services were called to the scene, where it's believed a man was rescued from beneath the Luas.

The Luas was travelling from Tallaght towards the city when the incident occurred on Stephen's Lane.

The man was brought to hospital, where his condition is unknown.

The incident occurred shortly after 1pm today.

Luas customers are advised to expect delays as there are "no services between Blackhorse and Heuston due to an incident".

The Red Line is "operating from Saggart/Tallaght to Blackhorse and from Heuston to Connolly/The Point only."
