The Luas Red Line was delayed this afternoon after an incident at Abbey Street.

"Please be advised that there is currently no services running between Abbey and The Point due to an incident at Abbey", Luas said. "We apologise for any inconvenience caused."

Emergency services including Gardai attended the scene. 

Witnesses told Independent.ie that two men became involved in a scuffle before one ended up lying on the tracks.

Emergency services were alerted and one man was arrested at the scene. 

Shortly thereafter he was removed and services resumed.

However, there were considerable delays. 

UPDATE: "Services are operating with some delays on the Red Line after an earlier disruption. We apologise for any inconvenience caused."
