Garda quiz three after car chase

A car, believed to have been stolen in Northern Ireland, has been involved in a police chase along a motorway in the Republic.

Gardai said they intercepted the car on the M1, just outside Dublin, at about 5.30pm on Wednesday and arrested three men.

A number of Garda cars were damaged as the vehicle was brought to a halt but a Garda spokeswoman said no one was hurt. The three men are being questioned at Ballymun Garda station.

The southbound lanes of the M1 were closed at the M50 junction for a number of hours on Wednesday evening while police carried out their investigation.
