A group of community-minded football fans have been praised by the police, after they worked together to push a broken down bus that was causing traffic chaos on a Sheffield road.

People travelling through Hillsborough faced significant delays this morning, after a First 52A bus broke down in the middle of the road, and led to both the blue and yellow tram services being brought to a standstill.

But thanks to a group of passing football fans who pushed the broken down bus out of the way, traffic began flowing normally about half an hour ago.

A spokesman for Sheffield West Neighbourhood Policing Team said: "Community spirit at its best. The broken down bus was causing traffic chaos and this group of football fan pushed it to get traffic flowing again. #sheffieldissuper"
