Channel Tunnel travellers are experiencing a second day of disruption following Monday's overhead power line problem.
- Four of the high-speed Eurostar train services had to be cancelled today and there were delays to the Folkestone to Calais shuttle services
- Eurostar said passengers who had a booking on a cancelled train could exchange their ticket, free of charge, for another available service within the next four months
A spokeswoman for the Port of Dover said it was "working hard" with ferry companies to help get Tunnel traffic across the Channel after disruption was caused by a broken down train.
Engineers are still working to try and restore power to a part of the Eurotunnel. It comes after overhead power cables were damaged earlier today.
A spokesman for Eurotunnel said this evening that engineering work will continue until 6am tomorrow morning, when the tunnel will partially reopen. Eurotunnel and Eurostar services have been badly disrupted. See the Eurostar.com website for more information on the delays.
The following Eurostar services have been cancelled after a Eurotunnel shuttle train ground to a halt in the Channel Tunnel following a power failure:
- 9019 (Paris to London)
- 9018 (London to Paris)
- 9133 (Brussels to London)
- 9132 (London to Brussels)
- 9024 (London to Paris)
- 9031 (Paris to London)
- 9148 (London to Brussels)
- 9153 (Brussels to London)
Services through the Channel Tunnel using one of the two running tunnels, were able to continue but Eurotunnel warned that services were being delayed, with hold-ups possibly lasting for the rest of the day.
