Pensioner hit by tram in Cleveleys

Flexity 004 returning to Starr Gate depot after the accident with the pedestrian in Cleveleys
A pensioner was clipped by Flexity 004 between West Drive and Beach Road in Cleveleys this morning as she crossed the tram track. Because of this incident northbound trams were being turned back at Cleveleys for about an hour until the tramway was cleared. Flexity 004 was noted southbound at Gynn Square at 12:55, returning back to Starr Gate depot with an engineering crew on board and displaying the message "Sorry Not In Service" on the destination screen. Flexity 016 was noted working a short service to Thornton Gate after the tram tracks were cleared, presumably for positioning reasons to try and regain a normal service frequency.

Flexity 015 passing track works at Manchester Square, on the temporary short service to Cleveleys due to the incident
