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 stopped about a quarter of the way through the tunnel at about 07:30 BST.

One passenger, Richard Byrom, from Maidstone in Kent, describes being stranded on the train for four hours.
