Eurostar has been forced to cancel trains causing “major” disruption to their service due to a World War two bomb being found near to Gare du Nord in Paris.

Five services were cancelled on Sunday between Gare du Nord and London, four were from Paris and the other one was a service from London, many more services will be delayed.

During engineering works near to the Gare du Nord station in Paris, an unexploded bomb was discovered.

The area has been locked down causing disruption to road and domestic train services until the bomb is made safe.

Eurostar said, “As a result of this operation we have had to substantially revise our plan for Sunday and will be running a modified timetable.

“This includes the cancellation of five services and the rerouting of one service to Marne-la-Vallée.”

Adding, “We are sorry for the impact this will have on our customers and would strongly advise anyone scheduled to travel with us between London and Paris this weekend to consider changing their plans.”
