LONDON (Reuters) – Passengers on the first trains between London and Paris after Britain left the European Union faced lengthy delays on Saturday – though overrunning engineering work and track problems, not Brexit, were to blame.
Eurostar’s website showed some early morning trains travelling under the Channel on Saturday were delayed by more than two hours. The normal journey time for the high-speed route between London and Paris is just over 2-1/2 hours.
Trains between London and Brussels were also delayed.
