Eurostar breakdown: Raworth stuck outside Channel Tunnel

A power fault has stopped a Eurotunnel train in the Channel Tunnel, causing hundreds of passengers to be evacuated from the train and causing long delays.

The France-bound train, carrying 382 people, stopped about a quarter of the way through the tunnel at 07:30 BST.

Eurotunnel said as services could only run in one tunnel, queues were building up and delays were expected all day.

BBC presenter Sophie Raworth was among the passengers caught up in the delays.
