Power cut in French capital effects Eurostar service, passengers advised not to travel

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Eurostar services to and from the French capital are severely disrupted on Friday with the company advising passengers not to travel due to power cut in Paris.

Four services — two departing from Paris and the others from London — have already been cancelled.

Reports indicate that there had been a power cable issue on one of the platforms in Gare du Nord, Eurostar’s Paris base. It was not immediately clear what caused the failure.

Services from Brussels were also disrupted on Friday with delays of between 30 minutes to an hour because of speed restrictions imposed due to high temperatures.
