A man in his twenties was tackled to the ground and arrested after running out of Terminal One onto the runway in an attempt to make his flight to Amsterdam.

Dublin Airport confirmed this morning that a man and a woman were late for a flight to Amsterdam and arrived at the gate after their flight had closed.

According to 98FM, they were talking to Ryanair staff and the man banged on the window in an attempt to get the plane to wait.

He then broke through a door and ran on to the tarmac where he had to be pinned down by staff and airport police.

The man was arrested at around 7.20 am this morning and taken to Ballymun Garda station where he is currently being detained.
