Update following Metrolink incident this morning

Please note that all Metrolink services are now operating across the network following an incident on Balloon Street in Manchester city centre this morning. 

A small fire – believed to have been caused by a build-up of gas – was reported in a Metrolink chamber that caused damage to equipment and a loss of power in the city centre. 

As a precautionary measure GMFRS requested that power to the Metrolink network be switched off while the matter was investigated.
