A video has emerged online which shows a crowd of young people dumping the contents of a large bin into a canal in Galway.

In the video, people can be seen laughing as rubbish is dumped into the water as a large crowd watches on.

Littering has become a huge issue as people meet outdoors to socialise, with local councils coming under particular pressure to supply more public bins.

However along with the litter, there’s also been a marked increase in incidents of antisocial behaviour, with a number of arrests made over the weekend in Dublin alone.

There’s been huge anger in reaction to the video.
