Blackpool trams: Driver view of resort's new vehicle

3 April 2012 Last updated at 08:23 BST

Blackpool's new £100m tramway is open for business after a four-year project to replace 11km (7.3 miles) of track, build a hi-tech depot and introduce a new fleet of 16 trams.

The tramway, which dates back to 1885, runs from the resort's Pleasure Beach to the ferry terminal at Fleetwood.

In addition to the new fleet, older "heritage" trams will also run on the line, including three decked with coloured lights for the Illuminations.
