Eurotunnel train stopped in Channel Tunnel by power fault

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.

The 382 passengers were led into the service tunnel and taken to the French terminal.

The BBC's Richard Westcott reports from St Pancras International station in London.
