Eurostar passengers have faced significant delays following power supply problems.

All services that use the High Speed One line and Southeastern trains were affected.

Eurostar was advising passengers to check in normally, but to expect delays of around 30 minutes.

Earlier, there were delays of up to two hours on Eurostar, with delays for Southeastern services into and out of Kent of at least 60 minutes.

A spokesman for Eurostar said: "We have not had to cancel any services and things are now moving again."

Eurostar said one of its trains had got stuck in the area of Gravesend in Kent and others had been held at St Pancras.
