Eurostar trains to fully resume between UK and Brussels

Eurostar train
Eurostar thanked its customers for their patience

Eurostar services between the UK and Brussels will fully resume on Monday 1 March - more than two weeks after a fatal crash in Belgium.

Services in the Brussels region were disrupted following a collision between two commuter trains, which killed 18 and injured about 150 people.

Following the suspension, Eurostar ran a limited London-Brussels operation.

There will be five direct Eurostar services between London and Brussels on Saturday and Sunday.

Over the weekend, trains will be leaving Brussels 20 minutes earlier than the advertised time and customers will be informed of the change to the timetable.

Services between London and Paris have been unaffected.

The crash at Halle, near Brussels, was at the point where commuter and high-speed lines meet, preventing Eurostar and other train companies from being able to operate in the area.

In a statement, the company thanked its customers during the period of disruption.
