Two Eurostar trains bound for London have been delayed and a station evacuated after the discovery of a “world war souvenir”.

French police were called to Paris Gare du Nord station after the find, which was reported to be a shell, on Sunday morning.

The check-in area at the transport hub was evacuated as a precaution, a spokeswoman for Eurostar said.

The Paris to London service at 8.13am (0713 GMT) was delayed by 20 minutes, while the 9.13am was held back for half an hour.
