Passengers were reportedly gagging at the smell as two carriages had to be cleared following an incident on board a Dublin to Sligo train.

The route was also delayed for 30 minutes in Mullingar while staff tried to sort the sensitive issue out.

Crammed passengers were then left even more cramped as they were put into the remaining six carriages where there were complaints that a smell had followed via people's shoes.

Irish Rail has been criticised for their handling of the situation as there was no member of staff immediately available to try and help.
