Eurostar resumed a limited service between London and Lille and Brussels this evening after initially suspending trains to Brussels following this morning's attacks.

At least 30 people have been killed and 130 people wounded in a pair of attacks at Zaventem Airport and Maalbeek metro station this morning.

The Eurostar website states that the 15:04 and 18:04 services from London St Pancras are running, as is the 20:30 from Lille.

Meanwhile, the 18:04 travelling from Paris to London will make an additional stop in Lille.

However, Eurostar is also advising passengers only to travel today if it is essential.

The company has also advised leaving one hour for check-in because of enhanced security, and recommends that those travelling tomorrow also do the same.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) updated its foreign travel advice for UK nationals in light of the bomb attacks, and advised Brits not to travel to Brussels.

"The Belgian authorities are currently advising against travel to Brussels. You are advised to follow the instructions of the Belgian security authorities," the FCO said.
