Metrolink passengers were told their tickets would be accepted on buses to help passengers get to their destination.

Passengers took to social media to vent their frustration with Andrew Hazell tweeting: "What is it with the people in Manchester. They are all ways on the tram lines."

Another added: "Not at all surprised as the signage from Union St in particular is atrocious-such a dangerous junction!"
