Three people have been arrested after a high-speed pursuit along the M1 motorway this evening.

Gardaí say they encountered a vehicle on the motorway at Drogheda that had been stolen in the North.

The car was pursued towards Dublin.

Gardaí attempted to ram the car near the M1/M50 junction.

Three garda cars were damaged in the incident.

Three men are being detained at Ballymun Garda Station.

The section of road remains cordoned off, leading to significant traffic congestion in the area.
