Gardaí arrive as residents protest against the installation of Irish Water meters in Ferrybank on Monday
Gardaí in Waterford are investigating the theft of equipment for installing water meters from a housing estate in Ferrybank last night.

A number of residents in the estate blocked Irish Water staff from installing water meters yesterday and people living in the nearby Abbey Park housing estate also blocked Irish water staff earlier in the week.
