Trams are unable to run between Bury and Manchester Victoria this morning after problems with the overhead lines.

Metrolink says engineers are working to repair the damage, but it's "unlikely" to be fixed before noon today.

Replacement bus services are running.

I apologise to our customers who are having to use alternative transport to make their journeys this morning. I understand that this is inconvenient and frustrating.

Investigations have begun to find out the cause of the damage to the overhead lines but our immediate priority is to restore a full service on the Bury line as soon as possible.

– Danny Vaughan, Head of Metrolink for TfGM

Services on all other Metrolink lines are running as normal.
