A man is due in court tomorrow charged in connection with the seizure of a loaded gun in Dublin.

He was one of two men who were detained in the East Wall area of the city yesterday afternoon.

The arrests were part of an intelligence-led operation by the Garda Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau which was supported by other armed garda units.

The second man who was arrested was released without charge this afternoon and a file is to be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.
