It's thought the Channel Tunnel could reopen this afternoon after an incident involving a Eurotunnel shuttle train.
A lorry shuttle train is believed to have caught fire, with smoke seen coming from the vehicle after it emerged from the French side of the Channel.
The train was thought to have been met by fire crews in Calais and the blaze quickly extinguished.
It is believed that truckers, who were in a separate carriage, were evacuated to emergency sidings. No injuries have been reported.
