Unruly behaviour has forced Dublin's portal with New York to be turned off.

The livestream, that's got global attention, isn't expected to be back operating for a number of days.

The portal was only switched on this day last week but inappropriate behaviour has forced it to be suspended.

It was shut off at 10pm last night after a fix, that would have involved blurring images, wasn't up to scratch.

Some people have flashed body parts and displayed porn and footage of the twin towers burning, that have been shared widely online.

Dublin city council says the team behind the art sculpture is now looking at other options and the technology, that has been nicknamed the "portal-oo", isn't expected to be turned back on until later this week.

In a statement, the local authority said; "We are delighted by how many people have been enjoying the Portal since it was launched last week.

It has become a global phenomenon and it is important to note that the overwhelming majority of people interacting with the Dublin Portal have behaved appropriately."
