Strike action by Eurotunnel staff in France has led to the cancellation of all services on Eurostar and the cross-channel service LeShuttle.

Eurostar’s website says: “Due to unexpected strike action by Eurotunnel staff, we’re sorry to let you know that your train has been cancelled.”

LeShuttle said: “Due to industrial action in France, all LeShuttle services have been temporarily suspended.

“We apologise for the delay to your journey. Further updates will be provided shortly.”

GetLink, which owns the Channel Tunnel and which operates LeShuttle, told the Reuters news agency: “Today’s call for strike action by representatives of Eurotunnel’s French site staff unions has resulted in the complete interruption of service and the closure of our terminals in France and the UK.”
