Following the discovery of cameras and surveillance equipment in a hotel room on Harcourt Street, two mean are being questioned for allegedly spying on the Garda Síochána's Dublin headquarters in the city centre.

Gardaí are describing the discovery of the equipment as sinister.

Officers from the special detective unit raided the room in the Harcourt Hotel yesterday afternoon.
