Eurostar trains to and from London St Pancras International were cancelled on Saturday due to a trespasser who was reportedly draped in a St George's flag.

Services have now resumed but long queues were seen at the station.

British Transport Police said in a Tweet a 44-year-old man had been arrested, was found in a "precarious position", and "spent the night on the rood of St Pancras Railway Station".
