    Breaking News is that the tunnel is closed due to discovery of smoke.

    Hope any funsters are ok..

    UPDATE: Reportedly caused by a lorry fire on the French side.
    Gonna be closed all day, maybe longer.

    Just a heads-up for any funsters travelling to France.

    Sounds silly ... but Thank goodness... With all that going on in the world your mind can run riot at times. Thanks for the info.

    beat me to this just heard it on the news seems a lorry caught fire inside the tunnel must have been a bit alarming if you was down there
