A Garda operation is underway on the DART line this afternoon amidst news of a possible bomb scare.

Train services were suspended in the wake of the news along the line, as the Gardaí went about investigating a suspect package.

A bomb squad from the Defence Forces is on the scene and the area has been sealed off pending further investigations into the nature of the package.

For commuters, Dublin Bus is accepting tickets as the line between Raheny and Howth/Malahide is closed for now as a result of the operation, which appears to be still ongoing.
