Full Eurostar services resume after weekend disruption

Eurostar has confirmed full services have resumed after a weekend of disruption caused by a fire in the Channel Tunnel.

A fire on board a lorry passing through the tunnel saw it closed for most of Saturday, while an unrelated electrical fault saw further closures on Sunday morning. 

Eurostar warned of short delays, but said a full time table would operate.

Tunnel operator, Eurotunnel has also warned its Le Shuttle trains could be delayed for an hour and a half.

More than 10,000 passengers have been affected over the weekend.


A total of 26 Eurostar trains were cancelled due to both closures.

Passengers are able to either exchange their tickets or get a refund.
