Treinverkeer onder kanaal verstoord na panne met Eurostar

Het treinverkeer onder het Kanaal is sinds deze namiddag verstoord nadat er zich in de Kanaaltunnel een panne met de Eurostar Londen-Parijs had voorgedaan. Dat melden de Franse spoorwegen (SNCF).

De Eurostar 9014, die in Londen was vertrokken om 09.40 uur (08.40 uur GMT) en om 13.23 uur in Parijs moest aankomen, “is in de tunnel rond 12.00 uur in panne gevallen. De trein hield halt, om vervolgens aan ongeveer 30 km/uur weer verder te rijden. De Eurostar reed rond 15.15 uur de tunnel uit” aan Franse kant, aldus een woordvoerder van de SNCF.

Tot anderhalf uur vertraging

Het treinstel stond rond 16.30 uur nog steeds in Calais, in het noorden van Frankrijk. De 530 passagiers worden op een andere trein gezet die van Brussel komt.

Het incident veroorzaakt hinder voor al het treinverkeer onder het kanaal. De Eurostar Londen-Brussel van 10 uur liep meer dan vier uur vertraging op, en de andere treinen die vanuit Parijs, Londen en Brussel moesten vertrekken hadden te kampen met vertragingen die kunnen oplopen tot bijna anderhalf uur.

Gordon Ramsay naast de pot

De vloekende topkok Gordon Ramsay gaat al jaren vreemd met blondine Sarah Symonds, meldt News of the World . De twee reserveerden vorig weekend een kamer in een Marriott Hotel in Londen voor anderhalf uur intieme lichaamsbeweging. Nochtans staat Gordon bekend als familieman. Recent omschreef hij zijn vrouw Tana als ‘de enige vrouw die mij opwindt’. Symonds is dan weer de auteur van het boek Having an affair? Handbook for the other woman . Blijkbaar heeft ze haar eigen tips om een affaire uit de publiciteit te houden, slecht toegepast.
