New Manchester tram line causes chaos on the cobbles

A new Metrolink line to the Trafford Centre is going to cause problems for Coronation Street, it's reported today.

The £350m Trafford Centre Metrolink line has been given the government green light - but Coronation Street bosses aren't happy about it, says the Manchester Evening News.

ITV bosses complained about the proposed new line because the noises of squealing wheels, bad vibrations and booming speaker announcements from the  tram stop might be heard while they were filming Corrie.

Coronation Street said they knew nothing of the tram plan when they built the £10m set in 2013.

For those fans who like plans and maps and all that sort of thing, have a look at the Manchester Evening News website here for full details.
