Main Sheffield city centre road partially closed after incident involving tram
Part of Sheffield’s main city centre road has been closed after an incident involving a tram.
Around six police cars and a van were at the scene on West Street, where the road was closed from the junction of Fitzwilliam Street.
An empty tram was stationary on the tracks following the incident, with the road partially closed heading towards Glossop Road.
There are, at present, unconfirmed reports that a person was struck by the tram.
Trams were cancelled and buses rerouted due to the closure, with some buses forced to make a three-point-turn as they were unable to pass.
Stagecoach Supertram tweeted: “Due to an RTC on West St Blue and Yellow route services are unable run between Cathedral and shalesmoor.”
South Yorkshire Police are not giving a statement at this time.
