Eurostar suspends train services after tunnel smoke detected

The BBC reports that:-

Eurostar has suspended all its services after smoke was detected in the Channel Tunnel, the company says.

According to the Eurostar Twitter account, all trains are returning to their original stations and the tunnel will be closed until "further notice".

Eurotunnel spokesman John O'Keefe said passenger and freight services were suspended just after 11.25 GMT.

He said that two alarms were triggered, and that inspectors had been sent into the tunnel to investigate.

Mr O'Keefe said: "Two detectors are telling us that there is something to inspect so we stopped the traffic and sent in the inspectors to see what they say.

"The investigation into the two alarms is going on at the moment so as soon we know more we'll let [everyone] know."
