Eurostar suspended as strikers set fire to Calais track [BBC News]





Date: 30/06/2015

Thousands of cross-Channel passengers are stranded after striking Calais ferry workers closed the French port and blocked Eurotunnel rail services. The MyFerryLink workers walked out on Monday for the second time in a week over the sale of the company's ferries to rival firm DFDS Seaways. Both Eurostar and Shuttle services were suspended due to fire on the tracks. The tunnel reopened at 15:30 BST and Eurostar said 'some services will run this afternoon'. However, Shuttle services are running with a three-hour waiting time at the Folkestone terminal.
