Rail services between UK, France suspended once again

Rail services between UK and France have been suspended once again after migrants got on to Eurostar’s train tracks near Channel Tunnel.

 Media reports say the migrants’ activity has disrupted the journey of over 2,000 Eurostar passengers.

According to The Guardian, “Passengers on one halted train were told by the driver that people were on the tracks between the tunnel’s entrance in France and Calais Frethun, a freight terminal to the south that has become a focal point for those trying to get into Britain.”
