Cancellations on Eurostar trains through Kent across weekend after bad weather

By Molly Mileham-Chappell

Eurostar has confirmed customers affected by cancellations to its services this weekend will be able to change their tickets.

Rail passengers travelling to the continent have been left having to rearrange plans after recent bad weather sparked 'essential maintenance' on the high-speed locomotives.

It has meant some services for the next four days have been scrapped.

Scheduled departures to and from St Pancras International, Ebbsfleet International and Ashford International have all been impacted.

The repair works come following severe adverse weather conditions last week, including snow and heavy rain.

A Eurostar spokesman said: "This was due to the bad weather over the past few weeks, which was worse on the French side than in the UK. As you’ll know from all rail operators, snow can cause damage to trains, and we have made some cancellations to allow our teams to carry out the necessary repairs.

"All passengers have been notified in advance, and will be able to change their tickets to alternative trains."

The cancellations are currently in place until Sunday, February 10.

Passengers should check their journey before travelling.
