Eurostar trains to and from London cancelled due to flooded tunnel

London, Dec 30 (UNI) Eurostar trains to and from London have been cancelled on Saturday after a tunnel under the River Thames was flooded, stranding thousands of passengers ahead of New Year’s Eve.

No high-speed services are expected to run between Ebbsfleet International in Kent, 10 miles east of London, and London St. Pancras International due to tunnel flooding near Ebbsfleet International.

Eurostar, which runs services from London to Paris, Brussels, and Amsterdam, said services from London have been cancelled and apologised to customers for the impact on their travel.

At least 14 trains have been cancelled, according to information on the Eurostar website.

The disruption to Eurostar services came after much of Britain was impacted by Storm Gerrit.

Britain’s Met Office has issued several warnings of strong wind and heavy rain that will impact much of the country over the weekend.
