HAPPY TALK: Eurotunnel Part 2

As AERBT reported last week Eurotunnel, or at least the French end of it, has some serious problems.  But it gets worse.

You may recall that we noted that some passengers had left the shuttle at Frethun in France, waited for their cars, and found that in fact they were on their way back to Folkestone.

Now it appears, according to the Paris daily Le Monde, not all the cars were empty.  Some had people sitting in them.

And they went back to the UK too!

It’s very frustrating (and it could be scary) sitting in an automobile hurtling backwards deep under the English Channel at 100 mph not quite knowing what is happening.

And yes the same offer was made.

A full refund and a free ticket for the next time!
