Substantial delays, closures and cancellations were on the menu, for those hoping to use the Eurotunnel over the weekend. The hold-ups were experienced on Sunday as a broken rail was replaced, with bi-directional traffic reduced to sharing the same single line. Travellers are still on Monday morning frustratingly tweeting the delays have continued.
Eurotunnel communications staff only seem to work regular office hours and were not responding to early morning media or passenger tweeted enquiries. The latest position is that extra trains are being put on to clear any backlog and if you have been delayed more than two hours, fill in a compensation claim form. Merry Christmas!
