Eurostar suspends all train services after smoke detection. -- Channel tunnel reopens

All services of Eurostar were suspended Saturday due to smoke detection in the Channel Tunnel, Eurostar announced Saturday.

All trains were returning to original stations as the Channel Tunnel linking Britain and France was closed until further notice, Eurostar's customer care team said on its Twitter account.

Eurostar added that the incident occurred at around 1130 GMT and no further services would be running for the rest of the day.

In response to a customer's inquiry, the company said that "it's been necessary to investigate everything thoroughly in the Tunnel before services can run again."

Eurostar had not confirmed the time of resuming the services, but aimed to "get things running again" by Sunday.

Passengers were advised to reschedule their travel or keep hold of their original tickets for re-accommodation.
