U.K. Travel Snarl-Ups Spread to Eurostar Trains

Travel bottlenecks that held up a pre-Easter exodus of thousands of British tourists at Dover ferry port over the weekend extended to rail services Monday after a freight train broke down in the Channel Tunnel.

Several Eurostar International Ltd. passenger expresses linking London with Paris and other continental cities suffered delays of up to an hour after the incident, a spokeswoman said, while the Eurotunnel truck-shuttle service from Folkestone to Calais was also disrupted, according to updates on Twitter.
