Speaking after the Eurostar Independent Review press conference, Catherine Bearder MEP (whose South East constituency covers two stations and the British end of the Euro tunnel) said:
"The independent review is a welcome first step - but a glossy report is not enough."
"We now need real action from Eurostar to ensure that the Christmas chaos is not repeated."
"We need a promise of fair treatment for all Christmas passengers and safe travel for all future passengers."
"That means implementing all of the Review's recommendations, putting in place the safety, technical and staff training measures required and guaranteeing that the costs of compensation and new safety measures will not be passed on to consumers through higher prices."
"The independent review has done a fine job, but their plans must be put into practice."
