Actually, it was yesterday that Gare du Nord was completely closed down (including the RER B). The theft of electrical cables caused the fire.

Everything is now back to normal according to the 1 o'clock news.

Interesting, in the UK we stopped cash scrap metal sales and brought all such deals into the banking system. As a result we no longer needed to have Ghurkas protecting the train cables to York.

How is scrap metal sold in France?

It is supposed to be strictly controlled but there are always shady dealers.

At least everyone who was inconvenienced will be reimbursed for their suffering.
