Signalling and telecoms cables were damaged when flames spread from a tent pitched away from the tracks.

Irish Rail's Barry Kenny says Dublin Bus will accept valid tickets until the line re-opens to passengers.

He said: "Greystones to Bray is closed. Greystones Dart services customers can use their tickets on Dublin bus services and it will also impact people travelling Dublin to Rosslare line so we are going to have bus transfers between Bray and Greystones for people travelling on those particular trains."
