Greater Manchester’s Metrolink tram network was suspended after two trams crashed in the morning rush-hour.
There were no injuries in the low-speed crash which happened at 08:30 GMT in St Peter’s Square, Manchester city centre.
“Due to an earlier incident in the City Centre, all trams across the network are currently suspended”, Metrolink tweeted.
Meanwhile, GMP found the humorous side to the incident by tweeting to their followers. “Seems @MCRMetrolink delays due to one tram ‘kissing’ another at St Peters Square. Staff say evetyone [sic] OK”.
Some services including Eccles to Cornbrook and East Didsbury to Rochdale resumed after the “knock-on” effects halted the network.
The incident has been referred to the Rail Accident Investigation Board.
Metrolink has apologised and customers are advised to use tram tickets on replacement buses
