LUAS OPERATORS TRANSDEV have confirmed it is investigating an incident which occurred at Bluebell Luas stop on Friday. 

A video posted on social media shows an altercation between two uniformed Luas staff members and a young man.

The man is then pulled to the ground and restrained by both staff members at the side of the platform. 

“This incident is under investigation,” a spokesperson for Transdev confirmed. “Once  completed appropriate action will be taken.
