Red line Luas services in Dublin have returned to normal following a collision between a tram and a bin truck.

The crash happened at the junction between Benburb Street and Temple Street West this morning.

Both drivers were taken to hospital as a precautionary measure, but have since been released.

The tram was derailed and efforts to remove took several hours.

Gardaí and the operating company Veolia are carrying out separate investigations into the incident.
