Details of what happened haven’t been released but the Oldham Evening Chronicle understand the incident happened between the Westwood and Oldham Mumps stations and caused the line to be block for about an hour.

It caused the cancellation of trams on the Oldham and Rochdale Lines before a normal service, with minor delays, resumed just before lunchtime.


Tickets were being accepted on local bus routes prior to services on the Rochdale and Oldham lines resuming.
