The high-speed rail services run by Eurostar between Paris to London and Brussels were suspended due to a power failure at Paris’s famous Gare du Nord station on Friday, disrupting passenger traffic on summer holidays.
Eurostar has advised passengers not to travel through the English transatlantic train service to and from Paris unless absolutely necessary.
The French state-run National Railways (SNF) said the services of the Thales train to Brussels were also affected by the holidays.
A spokesman for SNF said the cause of the accident was not yet known and there were no further indications that it was the result of the heat wave in the country.
