Two Dublin Fire Brigade paramedics were assaulted while attending to a case in Dublin this morning.

The incident happened on Westmoreland Street at around 4.30am.

It is understood the two men, in their 30s and 40s, sustained wounds to their faces and are currently being treated in hospital.

A spokesman for Dublin Fire Brigade said the two men would be off work for some time as a result of the assault.

A man, who was arrested following the attack, has since been released on bail.
