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.
