The truck's cargo of Covid-19 tests was not found once the vehicle was recovered.

Gardai are investigating the hijacking of a lorry in Co Meath earlier this week.

The driver was parked in a layby on the N2 in Slane at around 11 o clock on Tuesday night when a number of people restrained him and took control of the truck.

The driver was threatened and driven from the location but later released with no injuries.

The lorry was recovered on Wednesday afternoon, but a delivery of COVID-19 testing kits was not present.

No arrests have been made, and Gardaí are appealing for witnesses.
