Tram passengers will be hearing new announcements on their journeys from this week as Customer Services Advisor Claire Towers becomes the ‘voice’ of Nottingham’s expanding tram network.

The 28-year-old mum from Clifton took a break from looking after her six-month-old baby, Jasmine, to record a series of announcements at a recording studio in the city centre. Over the coming weeks, the new announcements will start to replace the on-tram messages recorded by former teacher, Wendy Smith, more than a decade ago.
