Train services in the Channel Tunnel, the world's longest undersea tunnel linking France and Britain, were suspended for several hours on Sunday due to an electrical failure, the train and tunnel operators said.

“Our service is temporarily suspended due to a power supply fault on our French terminal. Technicians are in place and working hard to resolve the issue. Further updates to follow,” railway shuttle service company Eurotunnel said on its official Twitter account.

The traffic resumed about three hours later. No trains were stuck in the tunnel, said the company’s spokesman.

The Channel Tunnel travels for 50 kilometers under the English Channel and carries more than 19 million passengers a year.
