Blackpool Transport initially said all southbound trams were stopped after an ‘incident’ on the tramway.

Heading north, they were only travelling between North Pier and Fleetwood.

But shortly after 11am, they began running in both directions between Manchester Square and Fleetwood.

And normal service resumed at around 12.15pm, though passengers were warned of delays for the next hour or so.
