Eurostar's reputation has been dented again after a train broke down in Kent with more than 700 passengers onboard.
The company said the train - which was en route from Paris to London - had suffered a "major technical problem".
The incident happened last night about 10.45pm in Ashford.
Passengers had to wait almost an hour in "complete darkness" before being transferred to a replacement train.
Eurostar has offered each affected passenger £300 in compensation.
A spokesman said he did not expect any delays to today's services and confirmed that an investigation into the fault had been launched.
Bosses were left red-faced in December when a trains broke down in the Channel Tunnel after enduring a malfunction brought on by freezing temperatures.
The incident led to severe delays and cancellations.
Eurostar services between St Pancras and Brussels remain cancelled after last week's train crash near the Belgian capital which caused more than 20 deaths.
Customers are advised to visit Eurostar's website for the latest information.
