Severe weather flooded a railway tunnel under the River Thames on Saturday, forcing Eurostar to cancel all services between London and Paris.
Eurostar warned of possible delays on Sunday, but services have resumed – writes A BBC.
Some speed restrictions will be in place on Sunday morning, which could result in delays, and stations are expected to experience significant congestion
The Met Office warned of possible disruptions to domestic travel over the weekend due to the weather.
Richard Thorpe, the track's technical director, apologized to passengers and told the BBC that water had been removed from both tunnels. He added that the unprecedented amount of water overwhelmed the pumping systems, causing floods.
This is the second major disruption to Eurostar services in ten days as a strike by French workers halted trains before Christmas.
We can confirm that we will be working on our planned schedule tomorrow.
Our stations will be very busy due to today's outage. If you are traveling tomorrow and would like to travel on an alternative date or request a refund, you can do so here https://t.co/WhdZ5Q4pi2
