Instead, trams were running between Priestfield and Edgbaston Village, while a shuttle service was taking passengers between Priestfield and Wolverhampton St George's.

One passenger reported that she was faced with a 38-minute wait for a tram for St Paul's.

It comes after a tram heading towards Birmingham broke down at Black Lake on Thursday morning, exacerbated by heavy traffic on the Bilston Road.
