TRAFFIC ON THE M50 has been brought to a standstill after two crashes on the motorway.

A first crash northbound between junctions 5 and 6, Finglas and Blanchardstown, already had traffic running slowly, before a truck and car crashed around Blanchardstown less than an hour later.

It is not believed there were injuries in either crash.

While both incidents have been cleared, the delays are knocking on, making the motorway a massive car park for many.

It is heavy from the Red Cow roundabout to Blanchardstown, but the M50 company say they hope that will ease before rush hour.

Motorists are being warned to slow down as heavy showers make driving conditions more difficult.

Elsewhere in the capital, traffic is as heavy as normal for a weekday afternoon.
