Stolen car abandoned on tram tracks
TRAM passengers faced delays yesterday after a stolen car was abandoned on the track at David Lane, Basford.
A man fled from the car after he was thought to have spotted a passing police car.
The Citroen had been stolen earlier in the day from Sneinton. Police sent out a helicopter to try to trace the thief but no arrests were made.
All tram services between Wilkinson Street and Bulwell were suspended but a replacement bus service was provided. A reduced service was also in operation between Wilkinson Street and Station Street and between Bulwell and Hucknall.
The incident was reported to police at about 5.45pm and the track was reopened at 7.15pm.
