Three men have been arrested this morning while taking part in the ongoing protest at the site of the Corrib gas terminal in Bellanaboy, Co Mayo.

Gardaí say the men, who are all in their 20s, were detained for alleged public-order offences.

One of them is understood to have been detained after assaulting a garda on duty at the scene.

Dozens of local residents have been protesting at the Bellanaboy terminal on a daily basis since gardaí broke up a blockade at the site last week to allow Shell to resume work on the facility.
