EUROSTAR has done a swift U-turn on its train booze ban – following an angry backlash from passengers.

The cross-Channel train operator rolled out new rules last year.

It barred travellers from bringing back more than one bottle of wine or four cans of beer from their holiday.

And passengers were forbidden from taking any spirits at all on board with them.

The ban sparked fury with scores of people fuming that miniature bottles of spirits were being sold onboard trains.

But angry customers pointed out that they used the link to the continent to bring back unopened French wines, Belgian beers and spirits as gifts for family and pals.

Eurostar has now changed track and claimed the ban was a misunderstanding.

New rules state: “We appreciate passengers want to bring a few bottles back from their trip.”
