In Pictures: Car breaks down causing delays in Edinburgh

car-jh

The tramway was brought to a standstill in the central area of the city at the start of rush hour on Wednesday by a car stuck on the tram tracks. Not the usual problem with a car stuck on sleeper track but this time broken down on the roadway blocking both tracks at Haymarket tramstop and thus preventing trams entering or leaving the city centre. It was eventually removed by a breakdown truck but held up services for about 45 minutes. Meanwhile trams continued to operate between Airport and Murrayfield Stadium. (Photograph by John Hampton)
