The scene of the accident is where the domestic commuter lines and high-speed lines meet at Halle near Brussels. This means that Eurostar services and other rail services including Thalys, TGV and domestic services are unable to operate on this route.
Eurostar is operating a reduced timetable between its UK stations and Lille. Services between London and Paris / Disneyland Resort Paris are operating normally.
