Thousands of passengers are facing heavy disruption on Eurostar after an overhead power cable fault in France.

Many passengers were delayed by up to 11 hours overnight and some services have already been cancelled for this morning.

It means four trains did not run this morning - and those that are running now will be subject to severe delays.

Eurostar has apologised and advised travellers to swap their ticket for another date if possible.

It said problems with an overhead cable meant trains had to be switched from high-speed lines to slower ones, adding it was "very sorry for any inconvenience".
