Horror as Eurostar passenger hit by train

EUROSTAR passengers are battling three-hour queues at London St Pancreas after a person was hit by a train near Lille, France.

Thousands of fed-up tourists faced a Bank Holiday nightmare as delays and cancellations led to massive crowds in London, Paris, and Brussels.

Eurostar spokesperson said: “Following the earlier fatality involving ES9028, all upcoming departures are likely to incur delays, including those from Brussels.

“As many trains as possible will be rerouted via the non-high speed line until the emergency services have given the all-clear.
