Three of Manchester's tram lines will be closed on Sunday while work to expand the network is carried out.

The South Manchester, Altrincham, and Eccles Metrolink lines will be closed all day, while services on the Bury and Oldham lines will operate to Victoria.

Transport for Greater Manchester said replacement buses would be running until normal service resumes on Monday.

Engineering work is under way on several new lines between the city centre and Greater Manchester.

Lines to Rochdale, Droylsden, Ashton-under-Lyne, East Didsbury, Oldham, Rochdale, Manchester Airport and Wythenshawe are all under construction.
