It has just been reported that three teenage boys have been arrested following the horrific incident at Howth Dart station last month.

As seen via CCTV footage, a group of teenage boys attacked various young girls running to get onto the Dart at Howth station. The footage appears to show that these girls were shoved, kicked and spat at. 

In an effort to avoid the group of teenage boys, one of the girls tripped and fell down in between the platform and the Dart which had stopped to take on passengers.
