New Eurostar train deal goes to court

Eurostar is facing a High Court challenge over its decision to award a £500m order for new high speed trains to a German company rather than a French one.

French firm Alstom is suing to stop Eurostar buying new trains from Germany's Siemens.

Alstom says the high speed trains made by Siemens do not meet safety regulations.
