Eurostar to resume restricted service

Eurostar's services have been shut down for the third day in a row, leaving many passengers stranded just before Christmas.

The company's boss, Richard Brown, says trains should start running tomorrow but he warned that there would be only a limited service to start with.

The chaos on Eurostar's trains briefly put the Eurotunnel car shuttle service out of action too.

Gavin Hewitt reports.
