A contractor has just been found driving his van into Mountjoy Prison in Dublin with, erm, a bag of guns in the van. The guns are airsoft weapons. The incident has just caused a major security alert at the jail and the man has been arrested for questioning. More coming up! pic.twitter.com/MWvu2YLl3x— Conor Lally (@conormlally) July 17, 2018
