An Post has said operations have returned to normal at its Merrywell depot in south Dublin, with almost no disruption to parcel deliveries.

An Post had evacuated the facility overnight on advice from the emergency services, who were continuing to deal with a fire at the neighbouring Oxigen recycling plant.

An Post said sorting was diverted to other depots and any delays that may have occurred were "minimal".

The company said full operations were restored by early afternoon.
