CROSS-Channel rail service Eurostar said that its new service to the south of France via Lyon had been a success as it reported a pick-up in business travel last year, when the business celebrated its 20th anniversary.

Eurostar, whose new high-speed e320 trains will start running at the end of this year, said passenger numbers rose three per cent to 10.4m in 2014.

This brought the total number of passengers travelling on Eurostar since the start of services in 1994 to more than 150m.
