The middle carriage was thrown off course and caused damage to a nearby bar, which was closed due to Government guidelines introduced due to coronavirus.

The usually busy streets were thankfully deserted due to the new guidelines, meaning there were no pedestrian casualties.

Diversions remain in place while emergency services are at the scene, with no access to the quays via Queen Street and diversions on to Blackhall Street.

There will be no service between Belgard and The Point on the Luas Red Line for several hours as the damaged Luas returns to the Red Cow Depot.

Further updates relating to travel can be found on the Luas website.
