EUROSTAR travellers were severely inconvenienced over the weekend when services were suspended with trains actually stuck in the tunnels. Some passengers had to wait up to 15 hours before being released. No trains at all operated on Sunday or planned for today (Monday 21 December) and readers should go to the Eurostar website to ascertain travel for the rest of the week. Test trains were being run to try and ascertain the problem. With road conditions poor due to icy weather, the knock-on consequences affected the motorways on both sides of the Channel. The train breakdowns coincided with strike action by Eurostar drivers in a 48-hour dispute over pay which began on Friday. www.eurostar.com
