THE MAIN LINES of the M50 have been closed southbound after a horsebox overturned.

The truck overturned between junction 12 Firhouse and junction 13 Sandyford.

Traffic is being diverted off the motorway at junction 12 and some traffic is able to get past on the central median, but drivers are being urged to avoid the area.

There are heavy delays heading in both directions on the motorway. None of the horses were injured and the driver is also unhurt.

Emergency services are at the scene, but the stretch of road will be closed until a crane arrives to move the truck.
