The Isle of Man Government has suspended electric tram services on the Snaefell Mountain Railway after health and safety checks following a brake failure last month.

A tram full of passengers failed to stop along the mountain, then rolled downhill after emergency brakes were applied.

The Department of Infrastructure says that Manx Electric Railway and Isle of Man Railways services will continue as timetabled.
