The Metrolink was temporarily suspended in Manchester following a serious incident on Mosley Street, leaving two people trapped in their car.

An eyewitness at the scene said: "It looked really serious. They had cordoned off the whole of Mosley Street and there were a lot of police and ambulance crew everywhere.

"Two people had become trapped inside the car because it was so badly damaged and they were attempting to cut them out."

Transport for Greater Manchester announced that normal services had now resumed through their Twitter account by announcing: "We've had the all clear to resume Metrolink services through the city. We'll now start to get service patterns / frequencies back to normal."
