In Pictures: Blackpool Flexity2 015 suffers collapsed pantograph

On Saturday 22nd February one of the normally reliable Flexity2 trams in Blackpool suffered a collapsed pantograph causing delays to the service. The incident occurred at Pleasure Beach when 015 was operating a Starr Gate-Fleetwood Ferry service and caused services to be suspended between Starr Gate and Central Pier whilst the tram was removed and repairs were made to the span wire which was also damaged as a result of the incident.
