Two men have been arrested following a high-speed garda chase in west Dublin.

The car in which the men were travelling, a Northern registration Audi, was stopped by gardaí working as part of Operation Anvil.

The men drove away from the scene at high-speed through the Liffey Valley Shopping Centre.

The car was eventually stopped by a number of garda cars and a firearm recovered.

A man in his 40s and a man in his 20s have been arrested and are being held at Lucan Garda Station.
