Trams came to a standstill for 20 minutes after a car illegally parked on the tram lines at Goldsmith Street outside Nottingham Trent University.
. Crowds gathered along with Nottingham Express Transport officers onto the street eager to see who owned the red mini causing all the trouble.
After several minutes and a failed attempt by Nottingham Express Transport officer to move the car off the tram lines members of the crowd took the matter into their own hands.
With two trams stuck outside the university and passengers waiting the group of men decided to push the car onto the pavement just as a Nottingham Express Transport tow truck arrived, breaking part of the mini in the process.
It was then the owner finally returned and was issued with a parking ticket. The crowd cheered as she drove away allowing the trams to get back to normal.
