Paris: Train and RER services at Gare du Nord hit by severe delays

An incident involving a person being hit by a train earlier on Tuesday morning has led to severe delays on train services at Gare du Nord in Paris.


Passengers and commuters travelling through Gare du Nord on Tuesday faced major delays after an accident that saw a person hit by a train earlier in the morning.

Services including the Eurostar and Thalys, all main lines plus the RER B which heads to Charles de Gaulle and Orly airports were suffering delays, according to reports.

According to French rail chiefs SNCF a person was hit by a TER train at around 6am on Tuesday morning, which led to all services being halted for over an hour as police and emergency medical teams attended the victim.

While train services were back up and running again just after 7am, passengers were warned they would still face delays throughout the morning.


To make matters worse for passengers, there were also reports of the station being evacuated after a suspect package was found.
