On the Disneyland train, the air conditioning, ventilation and lights failed, leaving passengers in hot, dark conditions.
"We are concerned that in those conditions nobody walked through the train to see how people were and explain what was happening," Garnett said.
The report described the dreadful conditions on the Shuttle, with overflowing toilets, and pregnant women and small children forced to sit on "greasy floors or to lean against the sides of the carriage".
At one point passengers had to designate one carriage as "an open toilet area".
Emma Powney, who was travelling from Paris to Ashford with young children, wrote of crying and vomiting children being stripped to their nappies, passengers breaking open the door to escape the heat, and children being forced to bed down on blankets bought from Disneyland in filthy, wet conditions.Eurostar has promised to put things right, but if the facts are as presented in the Guardian it is hard to see how the company or its directors have escaped prosecution.
Is it that health and safety is not the force we are told, or is there one law for large companies and another for the rest of us?
