Eurostar services experienced long delays yesterday after a 22 year old man was found dead on the tracks in Kent.
The Albanian man died after falling from a high-speed Eurostar train that was travelling from London St Pancras to Brussels service in Cheriton, Kent, on Monday at around 5.50pm, according to British Transport police (BTP).
It is thought that he was an illegal migrant being deported and had been refused entry to the UK.
The incident, which is not being treated as suspicious, caused long delays to the Eurostar service while police launched an investigation
A message on the Eurostar’s website following the incident said: “Following an earlier incident on the high speed line in the UK, Eurostar services are now running subject to delays.”
