Eurostar train halted in Channel Tunnel
Wednesday 24 September 2008
A passenger train from London to Paris was halted briefly in the undersea Channel Tunnel linking England and France because of a technical problem with the train, operator Eurostar said today.
"The train that had stopped in the Channel Tunnel has now moved. It's now out of the tunnel. It had a technical problem," a Eurostar spokesman said.
The train was the 6:55 a.m. (0555 GMT) service from London. It was not immediately clear whether it would proceed as normal to Paris, the spokesman said.
"It may well stop for more investigation," he said.
No one was hurt in the stoppage.
Eurostar is running a reduced timetable through the tunnel after a fire earlier this month damaged one of its two main shafts.
