Manchester Metrolink: van crashes through wall and falls onto track

A van has crashed through a brick wall and fallen onto tram tracks in Greater Manchester.

Emergency services are at the scene near Brooklands.

I means there are no trams running between Altrincham and Old Trafford.

It appears a van has gone through a brick wall and dropped onto the Metrolink tracks just north of the Brooklands stop, damaging the overhead lines and blocking both the inbound and outbound tracks.
