As of 5pm today, trams can only run between Wednesbury Parkway and Edgbaston Village.

It comes after the service was plagued with problems, with three complete service suspensions in the space of nine months due to cracks in the bodywork of the trams.

Union members are also balloting on whether or not to take strike action due to disputes over pay, with tram crew rejecting a £25k pay proposal.

It remains unknown when the service from Wednesbury to Wolverhampton will resume.
