Normal service is resuming after a loss of power caused delays on the West Midlands Metro service this morning.

The service was only operating between Wolverhampton St Georges and the Black Lake station, in West Bromwich, from around 7.40am.

The loss of power also caused problems with station announcements, time boards on some platforms and help point calls across the network.

Engineers were on site trying to fix the problem – and a normal service resumed shortly after 11am.

West Midlands Metro apologised for any inconvenience caused.

A spokesman from West Midlands Metro said: "Resolved. We are now operating a service from Wolverhampton St. Georges to the Library at Centenary Square.

"Please note that trams will not be running to timetable. A 15minutes/irregular service is in operation."
