Eurostar runs tests after Chunnel train failures

Trains running in the Chunnel (Channel Tunnel) from England to mainland Europe have broken down stranding thousands of passengers.

A Eurostar train is shown above. The photo below shows passengers waiting for trains to start running again.

Eurostar is running tests to try to figure out what caused an unprecedented six trains to break down, forcing the company to cancel all services last weekend.

The company announced later that Monday service will be halted as well to allow for more test runs.
