Eurostar services will remain suspended on Tuesday 16 February between the UK and Brussels

Eurostar will also be suspending all services between the UK and Brussels on Tuesday 16 February because of a serious accident involving two domestic commuter trains which occurred at 08h30 (CET) on Monday 15 February 2010.

The scene of the accident is where the domestic commuter lines and high-speed lines meet at Halle near Brussels.  This means that Eurostar services and other rail services including Thalys are unable to operate.

Eurostar is operating a reduced timetable between its UK stations and Lille.  Services between London and Paris / Disneyland Resort Paris are operating normally.

Because of the seriousness of the accident and the expected impact on both domestic and international rail services, passengers between the UK and Brussels are strongly advised to postpone or cancel their journeys.  Eurostar passengers can exchange or refund their tickets.
