LONDON (Reuters) - British police arrested a man for blocking the railway line on Saturday after Eurostar, which runs trains between London, Paris and Brussels, had to suspend all trains in and out of Britain for several hours.

Eurostar said services would be able to restart following the arrest, but recommended that passengers who could change their travel plans should do so. Long queues were visible at London’s St. Pancras station.

Local media showed pictures of a man on the roof of the station carrying an English flag.

The man was held for trespass and obstruction having spent the night on the roof of the station, British Transport Police said.
