Eurostar train services running between the UK and France have been halted due to power outages, Eurostar said on Thursday.

​According to Eurotunnel, which owns the rail route between Britain and France, none of its car-carrying trains are able to operate.

Later, Eurostar wrote on its Twitter page that traffic had resumed and services were slowly getting back to normal.

Clients informed being stuck on stationary trains for about 80 minutes.

​Power outages problems emerged after noon on Thursday and were fixed at 1.30.
