Storm Eunice has forced Blackpool Transport to cancel all tram services for the rest of today (Friday, 18th February). The tram service will resume tomorrow (Saturday, 19th February).
A Blackpool Transport spokesperson announced, ‘After careful consideration, our trams won’t be able to run for the rest of today. The high tides and extreme winds are too dangerous for us to operate a safe service. Our buses are unaffected. Stay safe all.’
Meanwhile the wind speed in Lytham St. Anne’s reached 94 km/h at 3.00 p.m. today.
