Gardai were called to a popular nightspot when a gang of up to 30 young men, some allegedly carrying weapons including axes and petrol bombs, tried to gatecrash it.

One man in his early 20s was arrested and charged over the incident.

However, investigations are continuing to get to the bottom of what exactly unfolded.

It was thought some of the young men had been trying to gain entry to Lost Lane at Adam Court, Dublin 2, when they were stopped by security.

It is understood a gig headlined by African artist Naira Marley was taking place at the venue when the incident unfolded. A number of other acts and DJs were also part of the line-up.

Attempts have been made by the Herald to contact Lost Lane for a response in relation to the incident.

It is understood gardai arrived and cleared the premises before shutting it down.

The scene remained sealed off yesterday morning.
