Trams services are back on track after problems with the overhead wires caused delays.

Trams travelling northbound were delayed by about 20 minutes when a loose sheet of tarpaulin was blown into the overhead wires near Anchorsholme Lane, Anchorsholme, shortly before 2pm, a spokesman for Blackpool Transport said.

The delays had a knock-on effect for services travelling south.

The spokesman said: "Our overhead team have removed the tarpaulin and the trams are now operating normally. It only took them 20 minutes."
