UK Immigration to Inspect All Eurostar Trains

In an effort to stop illegal immigrants at the source, British immigration officials will set up Passport controls for all UK-bound Eurostar trains, in Brussels and Paris, and at intermediate stops along the way.

British officials have warned that, for the past 18 months, under-staffing of customs stations has allowed 160 Eurostar trains, with up to 200,000 passengers, into Britain without having performed proper travel document inspections.

Those with stolen, fake or insufficient travel documents will be refused entry onto Channel Tunnel trains.
