3rd Annual Sustainable Business Travel Summit
Passengers travelling with Eurotunnel today (July 7) have been advised by the Channel Tunnel operator to postpone their trip, after a fallen overhead wire caused delays of up to six hours.
Hundreds of passengers had to be evacuated this morning after the 0620 train from Folkestone stopped about quarter of the way to France.
Eurotunnel, which carries passengers in vehicles on board trains between Folkestone and Coquelles, said it expected the problem to be fixed by the end of the day and that services should run normally on Tuesday.
The incident has also caused disruption to many Eurostar services, with delays and cancellations on trains between London St. Pancras and Paris and Brussels.
Eurostar said in a statement that if travel is non-essential then postpone the journey and re-book for a later date.
A Eurotunnel spokesman said: "The evacuated passengers are now at the French terminal and are waiting for the affected train to arrive so they can get their cars.
"We are advising people who don't need to travel today to travel on another day.
"There are queues building up and travellers should expect delays throughout the day."
