Eurostar train blocked after hitting deer
(05-08 18:01)

A Eurostar train from London to Paris was blocked for hours after hitting a deer in the dead of night, a company spokesman said Thursday.
The 450 passengers finally arrived in the French capital before dawn on Thursday -- over five hours late -- after the accident near Lille in northern France.
"Apologies, the deer did quite a number of the front bumper, which the driver has done his best to remedy, but safety before speed,'' Eurostar said in a tweet. --AFP
