IT’S BELIEVED THAT the Dart and train disruption between Bray and Greystones this morning was caused by rocks being placed on the tracks.

Gardaí in Bray are now anxious to speak to anybody who may have been walking on the Greystones/Bray cliff walk between 8pm and midnight yesterday.

The train derailed at around 3.20am today.

A number of rocks were found on the railway track – causing the train to derail.

The gardaí released a statement this evening stating that, “it appears that rocks may have been dislodged by unknown persons”.

Nobody was injured during this incident.

It happened about 100 metres north of the exit from the first tunnel on the rail track from Greystones to Bray.

Gardaí are appealing for anybody who may have witnessed a group of individuals at the commencement of the cliff walk in Bray or the entrance to the cliff walk in Greystones to come forward.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Bray Garda Station on 01-666 5300, the Garda Confidential Line 1-800-666-111 or any Garda Station.
