Innocent women flee their homes in fear of grenade attacks, a business shuts its doors terrorised by teenage thugs, while a community lives in fear of warring drug gangs brazenly attacking each other in broad daylight with hammers and wheel braces and displaying their gunfire on social media.

The scenes playing out in a Dublin suburb seem more at home in Mexico, yet for the hard-working people of Finglas this is the reality - as a gang headed up by a young dealer known as 'Mr Flashy' goes to war with three rival outfits in a terrifying feud.

Nicola Tallant chats with Crime Correspondent Ken Foy who tells of the rising tensions in an underworld populated by gun-toting teenage boys directed by mega-rich cocaine dealers.
