Other trams forced to stop at Shandwick Place caused congestion, with one blocking the junction with Torphichen Street until the damaged vehicle was removed.

A spokesman for Transport for Edinburgh said: “We can confirm that one of our buses and a tram collided. There were no injuries to passengers but there was some damage to both vehicles.”
