Belgian strike shuts down Eurostar route

Almost all the Eurostar services between the UK and Brussels scheduled to run today have been cancelled because of industrial action in Belgium, writes Jennifer Cockerell.
The 24-hour strike started at 10pm last night, causing considerable disruption throughout Belgium. Today, the only Eurostar train running between London and Brussels will be the 7.34pm from London.
It is also unlikely that there will be any high-speed onward rail connections from Brussels to destinations in France, Holland and Germany.
