A fire has broken out on a train at Dunmurry on the outskirts of Belfast.

A Fire and Rescue Services spokeswoman said what "appeared to be a small fire in a carriage," was reported shortly before 11:00 BST.

It is the second fire on a train within hours. An investigation is under way after a fire broke out on a train outside Newry, County Down.

One hundred and fourteen people were on the Belfast to Dublin Enterprise train when the fire broke out on Thursday.

'Evacuated' Translink said passengers were evacuated and emergency procedures were put in place after smoke was detected on the Portadown to Belfast train outside Dunmurry on Friday.

"There are no reports of any injuries and an investigation is underway," Translink said.

"Passengers have been transferred to another train to complete their journey."

Translink said the disruption caused by the incident had now ended and services were no longer affected by the problem.NIR.jpg
