A spokesman said the interruption, which affects trains stopping at Ebbsfleet and Ashford International stations, will last until at least 9.45am.

A Southeastern spokesman said: "There are currently no high speed services running between St Pancras International and Ashford International or Faversham because of the ongoing trespass incident.

"Tickets can be used on London Underground, Thameslink and Fastrack bus services."

Eurostar passengers heading to France were already facing possible disruption due to industrial action by French customs at Paris Gare du Nord station.
