Migrant dies in Channel Tunnel

A migrant has died in the Channel Tunnel, the second fatality in less than two weeks.

Services were suspended for an hour.

Around 0345 GMT (04:45 a.m. BST), migrants were spotted on a freight train, prompting traffic towards England to be suspended. Policemen found a dead migrant but the cause of death could not immediately be determined.

By mid-morning, traffic in the tunnel resumed but with delays. Around 3,000 migrants live around Calais, many trying to reach England illegally through the tunnel.

A migrant was found dead on the Eurotunnel site on June 26.
