Eurotunnel train delays follow French security alert
Eurotunnel passengers have been experiencing delays after trains had to be slowed through the Channel Tunnel because of a security alert.
The rail operator said services were slowed for about four hours after an alarm sounded at 06:00 BST on Friday.
French police searched the Calais end of the tunnel following reports that someone had entered the tunnel but found nothing.
A Eurotunnel spokesman said services were back to normal by Friday evening.
He said the rail operator spent the day running extra services and catching up.
By 20:00 BST all trains were running on time and there were no delays.
