Delays 'for rest of the day' after Eurotunnel shuttle train evacuation

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.

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.
