Stagecoach Supertram said services were disrupted due to what it called a 'police incident'

A member of the public said a man had been ‘laid in the middle of the tramlines’, preventing services from running in either direction.

Stagecoach Supertram said at that time that a ‘police incident’ was causing delays to blue and purple route services, with one departure from Hillsborough to Shalesmoor cancelled, but it said services were soon running again as normal.
