Eurostar services between London and Paris have continued to be affected by fresh snowfall and freezing temperatures.

Passengers are being urged to cancel or postpone their trips if possible because of the weather conditions.

The firm said it was restricting the number of trains it was running through the Channel Tunnel because of the low temperatures.

Early morning and late night services at the weekend have been cancelled.

'Sorry for inconvenience'

In a statement, Eurostar said: "If you do not need to travel we strongly recommend you cancel or postpone your trip.

"For Saturday 9 January and Sunday 10 January, there is a reduced timetable with a number of cancellations, including our very early morning and late evening services.

"Also, there may be additional delays or last minute cancellations. We are very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause."

The Brussels service has been restricted but Disneyland Paris and ski trains have been running as normal.
