The incident happened at around 4.30pm on Tuesday, September 12, as fans began heading to Hillsborough to watch Sheffield Wednesday take on Brentord.

SWFC Supporters Club tweeted a video of the dangerous manoeuvre before the match which Wednesday went on to win 2-1.

They tweeted: "Traffic quite busy tonight, but we recommend you don't do this to beat the queues."

The video prompted a number of shocked replies from Twitter users with many raising concerns about the lack of safety from the driver.

Stagecoach Supertram declined to comment when approached by The Star.
