West Midlands Metro announced at 2.30pm that due to a tram fault, services were unable to run between Wolverhampton St George's and Priestfield.

The problem meant trams were only running between Birmingham Bull Street and Priestfield.

Passengers were told they could use their tram tickets on National Express West Mildands' 79 bus between Wolverhampton and Priestfield before the service was restored shortly after 3pm.

The disruption comes two days after the service had to be stopped early along the whole network for repairs to the overhead line.

Trams only started running again last month after being withdrawn for three months when cracks were found, however a full service running all the way the Library and New Street in Birmingham has yet to be restored.
