Rush hour commuters were asked to push a tram packed with passengers after a technical fault left it unable to move.

It happened on Greater Manchester's Metrolink network at Brooklands station in Sale earlier.

Passengers were asked to push the side of the tram to help close its doors, activating a mechanism allowing the vehicle to pull away.

Metrolink later thanked customers for "rolling up their sleeves to help keep Greater Manchester moving".

Good for the passengers! Hope they got a ticket refund, though.  :)
