LILLE, France: Hundreds of passengers were left stranded in dark, stifling Eurostar trains in the early hours of Wednesday after several suspected migrants climbed onto the tracks near the French port of Calais. A spokesman for French rail company SNCF said people on the tracks on the French side of the tunnel had forced a train to slow down. “Once the train stopped, law enforcement intervened… and that blocked Eurostar services that were traveling towards London and the power had to be cut for safety reasons,” he said.
