Latest update : 2010-02-17

Eurostar trains between London and Brussels will remain suspended until at least Monday after a head-on collision between two trains on Monday in Belgium left 18 people dead and some 125 injured.

AFP - Eurostar trains between London and Brussels will remain suspended until at least Monday following a deadly crash in Belgium which disrupted services, the train operator said Wednesday.
  
"Because of the ongoing investigation of the accident in Brussels, we can't operate on that route. It means we don't know precisely when we'll have access of these particular tracks," a Eurostar spokesman said.
  
"We will not be able to operate until at least Monday" on the route, he said, adding that there would be a coach service between Lille in northeastern France and Brussels.
  
Eurostar services between London and Paris would operate normally, he added.
  
The French city of Lille is served by Eurostars linking London, Paris and Brussels. Eurostar is running trains linking both London and Paris with Lille, from where the coach to Brussels takes an hour and a half.
  
All Eurostar and Thalys high-speed international train services in and out of Brussels were suspended after a head-on collision between two trains Monday left 18 people dead and some 125 injured.
