French police prevent ski trip group from boarding Eurostar in London

A group who attempted to travel to Switzerland for a ski holiday were stopped from boarding a Eurostar train at London St Pancras for breaking Coronavirus restrictions.

Train manager Justin, who did not give his surname, posted on Twitter that French border police deployed at the station had turned the travelers away on Wednesday morning.

Justin wrote: “A ski trip to Switzerland does not count as essential travel on Eurostar. A group was turned away at St Pancras by the French border police this morning. I really fancy a trip with my family to eat chips in Brussels but there’s a global pandemic on right now. If we all do our bit and are patient for this final push, then hopefully we can get back to doing all of those things we love.”

Justin added that a ski trip “does not count as essential travel” and there are “very limited reasons for travel to France”.

Last week, a Eurostar passenger attempting to travel to a yoga class in Paris was also turned away from London St Pancras.

France only permits a limited group of people to arrive from the UK, such as transport workers, people delivering goods, or those who normally live in France.
