An investigation is underway after a tram on the Snaefell Mountain Railway suffered a brake failure.

The incident happened as the tram carriage was coming down the mountain yesterday afternoon near the Bungalow.

A second tram was sent to bring the passengers back to the Laxey station, with none of those on board reported to be injured.
