Dublin's Portal is to undergo changes to tackle inappropriate behaviour.

It comes less than a week after the 24/7 live-stream with New York City was launched.

From shared dance moves, to making friends and even a proposal, Dublin city council says the portal between Dublin and New York has had hundreds of millions of positive impressions on social media.

It says it's also increased footfall to North Earl Street but that there's also been a small minority of people involved in inappropriate behaviour, that's been amplified through social media.

In a statement yesterday the local authority said technical solutions would be implemented in the next 24 hours to tackle the problem and that it will continue to monitor the situation.

It comes after some people in Dublin exposed body parts, made offensive gestures and held up footage of 9/11.

Technical glitch

Meanwhile DCC has also confirmed there was a brief interruption to the feed yesterday morning.

It's blamed a technical glitch in the software and says the technical team is looking into the issue to improve the stability of the livestream.
