Eurostar travellers 'remain cautious' after Brussels attacks
Eurostar has reported a fall in passengers using the high-speed rail service, saying travellers "remain cautious" in the wake of the Brussels terror attacks.
Passenger numbers fell to 2.2 million in the three months to the end of March from 2.3 million a year earlier.
Eurostar said "demand is dampened" and there had been a particular slowdown in travellers from the US and Asia.
Revenues also fell to £201m, down 6% from a year earlier.
However, Eurostar said it had seen a surge in ticket sales in recent weeks ahead of the Euro 2016 football tournament, with the opening day of the competition - 10 June - proving to be the busiest day as the hosts France take on Romania in Paris.
The company said it expected nearly 500,000 passengers to make the trip to the main host cities in France, including Lille, Paris, Lyon and Marseille, throughout June.
