There were long queues at the Eurostar desk. The 8.52 train this morning could only leave around 1 PM, and this afternoon services were still delayed with about one hour. 

Spokeswoman Stefanie Van Mierlo said that maintenance works at two trains took longer than expected. As a result, the first two trains had "major delays". These only applied to trains departing from Brussels, but delays at other stations are also possible as a result. Frustrated passengers vented out their anger on Twitter.
