Eurostar services from London have resumed after trains were held for more than two hours when a man got on to the tracks.

Eurostar tweeted that the line was open and trains would start moving "gradually".

Services were held, stranding hundreds of passengers, after the incident near Dagenham Dock at about 20:30 GMT.

Eurostar said compensation would be available to those whose journeys had been delayed by more than an hour.

The decision to suspend travel had been made by British Transport Police, a Eurostar spokesman said.
