FLIGHTS AT DUBLIN Airport were momentarily delayed this morning after a dog got loose on the runway.

Staff at the airport quickly rounded up the stray pooch, as a small number of flights were forced to go-around the airport.

A spokesperson for the airport confirmed that the dog had been taken off the runway safely and flights are once again running smoothly.

The runway was not closed and only a small number of flights were affected.

It is not known what type of dog it was, but we’ll keep digging. (Sorry).
