DUBLIN’S PORT TUNNEL was closed both ways this morning, due to a fire.

Units of Dublin Fire Brigade (DFB) attended the scene, and the truck is said to have been travelling northbound.

A spokesperson for DFB told TheJournal.ie that the fire is now under control, and that no injuries had been reported, although one patient was treated at the scene.

It was then a matter of waiting for the truck to be removed, the spokesperson said.

Traffic delays were expected due to the closure, and this situation was been worsened by a collision on the M1/M50 southbound just before the tunnel entrance.

Northbound traffic was also said to be slow from the East Wall Road.

The Port Tunnel has since reopened.
