From Mrs Olive Freeman

Sir: Brian Rix and his friends (14 April) were very unlucky for their trip to Paris on Eurostar for their wives' birthdays. My husband and I had a very different experience for my birthday. We left Waterloo International terminal on time, had a leisurely breakfast, champagne at the right temperature, delightful time in Paris, drinks on our return train, dinner and a two- minute early arrival at Waterloo. There isn't much to be proud of in Britain today, but the Channel Tunnel is something we should take pride in.

Yours faithfully,

OLIVE FREEMAN

Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire
