However, the promenade remains open to traffic.

Stagecoach Supertram, in its update, said there was a continued disruption of its services to Parkgate, Woodburn Road-Middlewood and Sheffield Station while investigations into the incident are ongoing.

Tickets are valid on buses in affected areas and other routes continue to operate normally, but all services are still subject to disruption.
