Stagecoach Supertram have wrote on Twitter: “Traffic delays now easing across the system and trams returning to time. Please remember, TramTrain services suspended and Yellow Route services terminating at Tinsley/Meadowhall South. Stay safe. Have a good evening.”
Trains have also been affected with flooding stopping services through Rotherham Central where buses are replacing trains.
The Met Office has warned of prolonged and occasionally heavy rain throughout Thursday and into Friday, with up to 80mm (3in) falling in some areas – you can read the latest weather warning HERE.
Sheffield Wednesday are yet to speak of any concerns of the game going ahead, but if it keeps on like this, it wouldn’t be surprising if it was called off.
