Long queues again at Gare to Nord as French customs protest continues

Eurostar is again warning people not to travel from Paris as passengers reported long queues on Monday morning.

The situation on the Eurostar had seemed to ease on Friday, with the company saying things were “progressively returning to normal”, but on Monday morning passengers were again reporting long queues and chaotic scenes at Paris’ Gare du Nord station.

Eurostar’s official advice was for passengers not to travel as industrial action by French customs staff continues.

A Eurostar spokesman said: “Due to industrial action, we are experiencing very long queues in Paris Gare du Nord and some delays on trains from this station.

“We would advise not to travel from Paris unless necessary and it will be possible to change the date of your journey free of charge or claim a refund.

“Should you wish to travel, please arrive at the station at the time indicated on your ticket. We will do everything we can to accommodate you onto the next available service, if necessary.”
