<FONT color=black>The opening of the £1.9bn stage of the Channel Tunnel Rail Link through Kent has boosted the number of passengers travelling o­n Eurostar, figures show.

The London to Paris and Brussels high-speed train company sold 426,955 tickets in 19 days after the Folkestone to Fawkham Junction stage was opened.

This is an 11.7% increase o­n tickets sold in the same period last year.
