'Stuck on the wrong side of the channel': Wales fans face huge Eurotunnel delays

Thousands of Welsh football fans are at risk of missing tonight’s Euro 2016 quarter-final after a train broke down in the channel tunnel, causing delays of three and a half hours.

Some fans have reported delays of five hours – with many calling for the match, set to kick off at 8pm, to be postponed.

The game, being dubbed the ‘biggest game for Wales since the 1958 World Cup’, will see the team take on Belgium in Lille.

Amongst the frustrated Wales fan is music star and radio presenter Cerys Matthews.

Eurotunnel has responded by running three extra trains this afternoon, but warned that travellers will continue to face long delays.

It has also suggested those who don’t need to travel today should reschedule their journeys.
