Services on both lines of the Luas in Dublin have resumed.

The trams were out of service after heavy winds battered the country on Monday as a result of Storm Ophelia.

The storm damaged the roof on a depot at the Red Cow.

The damaged roof is over technical rooms, which help control various key Luas systems.

The roof was being repaired throughout the day on Tuesday.

The service did not resume Tuesday morning, but operator Transdev says both lines returned to passenger service on Tuesday night.

It says a decision was made to re-open the lines following a test of the track and technical systems.

This is in advance of an expected opening time of Wednesday morning.

It says: "The Luas will operate in accordance with the Luas timetable for this hour of the night - there is no change to last tram departure or frequency."
