Eurostar: Man with English flag brings service to a halt

Eurostar services to St Pancras have been cancelled

Eurostar services to St Pancras have been cancelled

British Transport Police arrested a 44-year-old man this morning after he made his way onto the overhead viaduct of the station, causing Eurostar and Southeastern trains to be cancelled.

Eurostar services from London were suspended Saturday morning after a man climbed onto the roof of St Pancras station and stayed put overnight, sparking a major security alert and disrupting thousands of travelers.

British police arrested a man for blocking the railway line on Saturday after Eurostar, which runs trains between London, Paris and Brussels, had to suspend all trains in and out of Britain for several hours.

Power to the overhead lines has been switched off as a result, so trains can not enter or leave the station.

Southeastern had to alter some journeys but has advised passengers they could use London Underground and Thameslink services instead at no extra cost.
