Eurostar chaos in Paris as passengers face 90 min queues: 'Gare du Nord totally out depth'


Travellers from Paris to London have been complaining the French Eurostar station is not fit to handle too many passengers as they were left stranded for over eight ours.

Massive queues to get on trains sparked fury with one passenger telling the Daily Express on site that she had been waiting for over 90 minutes with her small children.

Another passenger told “Eurostar staff look lost and totally out of their depth.

“There is no organisation, queues are several aisles wide, and when they merge, anger is breaking out as passengers jostle for a place in the queues.

“Frustrated passengers with young children have been forced to wait for over 90 minutes just to get to another queues to check passports.

“The pain continues as security checks sees customs officials searching bags and causing more delays.

“I have never seen such poor handling of what should be a routine check-in procedure.

“Gare du Nord has clearly had its day.”
