Police chase over stolen car in Sheffield causes tram delays

Have your say

Police chased and pulled over a suspected stolen car in Sheffield this afternoon.

The driver of the car was the subject of a ‘short pursuit’ before being pulled over and detained on Langsett Road, near Hillsborough.

Tram users were delayed slightly after the incident blocked tramlines into the city at about 3pm.

Stagecoach tweeted at 2.56pm: “Trams heading into City currently stood on Langsett Road due to a police incident. Sorry if you’re delayed.”

Another tweet a few minutes later then added: “City bound trams on Langsett Road now moving, there will be delays as a result. Sorry if you’re delayed.
