Protestors cause Metrolink disruption

Manchester Metrolink services running through St Peter’s Square were disrupted on Sunday 1st October after protestors decided to sit and stand on the tracks during protests outside the Conservative Party Conference (which was taking place at Manchester Central and the Midland Hotel). Whilst the Police dealt with the protestors Metrolink services were suspended through the area with trams from out of the city being turned at Cornbrook, Deansgate-Castlefield and Exchange Square. Services were still able to run into Piccadilly. Once the protestors were moved – two women were arrested on suspicion of obstructing the highway with one man arrested on suspicion of assaulting a Police officer – tram services resumed through the area but delays were still experienced.
