Strike in Belgium hits Eurostar service
Just one Eurostar service is running between the UK and Brussels today due to industrial action in Belgium.
The 24-hour strike caused disruption across Belgium when it started at 10pm local time yesterday. The last train to leave London was the 7.34pm service, which was brought forward to 5.27pm to avoid the start of the strike.
It is also unlikely that there will be any high-speed onward rail connections from Brussels to destinations in France, Holland and Germany today.
Customers had been advised to postpone their journeys. A spokesman for Eurostar said a revised Eurostar timetable was in operation, with trains running between Lille Europe station and the UK only.
A limited coach service was being run between Lille and Brussels, though he warned that demand was likely to be high.
The only train running between the cities today will be the 7.34pm from London. Anyone urgently needing to travel to or from Brussels was asked to contact Eurostar.
Customers are able to exchange their Eurostar tickets free of charge within 60 days for a journey in the next 120 days. For more information, visit http://www.eurostar.com or contact 08432 186 186.
