CCTV footage recently emerged of a girl falling between the DART and the platform during an assault, in which other teenagers appear to have been kicked and spat at.

In the video, she can be seen walking along the platform when a youth lunges at her. Another thrusts the wheel of their bike causing her to fall between the platform and the train.

The 17-year-old was pulled free from the tracks by a security guard and a passer-bys before the train began moving.

Three teenagers were arrested by Gardaí last week before being released without charge.

An additional arrest was made this week. The boy was was detained at Raheny Garda Station before being released, pending a file to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).

The investigation is ongoing.
