The incident was filmed by a shocked commuter as he waited for a tram at the Brooklands tram stop on Tuesday morning. In the clip passengers stood on the platform can be seen attempting to push the tram to one side, while laughing to themselves.
The vehicle was full with commuters.
A Metrolink staff member can then be heard saying on the public address system: “Thank you very much everyone.”
