Houses in Bray, Co. Wicklow have been evacuated as a gorse fire continues to burn in the area, RTÉ reports.

Earlier, DART services were suspended for the day after a fire traveled down the cliff face near the railway line. The blaze is thought to have started in front of a tent on Bray Head at around 1am on Friday morning.

The operation was suspended this afternoon as people were flying drones in the area.
