Eurostar has been forced to cancel a number of trains tomorrow due to strike action in France.

The high-speed Channel Tunnel passenger service said passengers would be re-accommodated on alternative trains.

Five London to Paris trains and two to Brussels have been cancelled together with the same number returning from the two continental European capitals.

Eurostar said: “Due to strike action in France on Wednesday 9th March, we need to make some changes to the Eurostar timetable.

“A number of trains have been cancelled with all customers re-accommodated onto alternative trains.

“We advise customers to check in at least 30 minutes before their new departure times.”

The company said passengers would be contacted with their new travel details.
