Major traffic delays were experienced by commuters this afternoon as emergency services attended the scene of a road crash on the M1 Southbound.

Firefighters and paramedics were at the scene of a road traffic collision on the M1 southbound, just after Junction four.

The M1 was completely closed southbound for drivers heading towards Dublin City but has since reopened.

Fans travelling to the Aviva Stadium for the first of Taylor Swift’s three Era tour shows were subjected to delays.

“Gardaí and emergency services are currently at the scene of road traffic collision on the M1 (Junction 3) in Swords, Dublin,” Gardaí said. “Diversions are currently in place.”

Dublin Fire Brigade said: “Divert if possible, expect delays.”

A separate road crash has occurred on the R132 Lissenhall in Dublin with Dublin Fire Brigade attending a vehicle on fire.
