Members of the army's bomb squad carried out a controlled explosion at a Stephen's Green school this morning after stores of nitric acid became unsafe. 

Gardai and the Explosive Ordnance Disposal Team were called to the school's lab just after 5am. 

A spokesman for the Defence Forces told Dublin Live that the operation was routine and that no-one was injured. 

Nitric acid is a common lab chemical and only becomes dangerous if it deteriorates over time.
