News, Rail — By on January 17, 2015 at 6:26 PM

WP_20150106_019Both Eurotunnel and Eurostar have cancelled their services both for vehicles, freight  and passengers expecting to resume same later on tonight after fire was detected in a lorry at the French end of the tunnel. No-one was hurt!

The tunnel’s closure led to many cancellations with passengers trips to and fro Continent leading to widespread disruption. Hundreds of lorries are queuing both ends.WP_20150106_054

Passengers are trying to re-book but due to the weekend there are fewer flights to Paris and Brussels making things more difficult.
