Eurostar has therefore had to make the decision to cancel all services for the remainder of the day,” the company said in a statement. said.

Previously, Eurostar had announced cancellations until 16:00 and then 17:00, but now “all our trains on our line to and from London on Saturday 30 December have been cancelled”. It is generally stated in the French press that 41 trains were canceled and they were planned to carry around 30 thousand passengers today.
