Channel Tunnel rail services suspended as trespassers are on the tracks


Suspected migrant activity has suspended Channel Tunnel rail services between the UK and France, Eurostar said. 

The train operator tweeted concerned passengers, who were left stranded both inside and outside the tunnel after services were halted, saying: "Trains are waiting to enter the tunnel as trespassers are on the tracks at Calais, the authorities are on site to help."

A later tweet to another passenger said, "The power has been switch off whilst the authorities deal with the trespassers." 

Three trains carrying passengers from Paris to London, one train from London to Paris, and one service running from Brussels to London have been delayed due to the incident.
