Bus services in the Irish capital will not run on Tuesday as an all-out strike at Dublin Bus enters its third day.

Management and unions are in dispute over a cost-cutting plan to save 11.7m euros (£10.16m).

Despite the bus strike, the Irish Department of Transport has said private motorists will not be permitted to use bus lanes.

Trains and trams are running as normal but Irish Rail and Luas have said they will not accept Dublin Bus tickets.

The strike began at midnight on Saturday and there were no Dublin Bus services on Sunday or Monday.
