Train traffic on the high-speed railway between Brussels and France was disrupted on Tuesday morning when a Thalys train hit a wild boar around 7:15 am.

This was reported by the rail operator Infrabel, and confirmed by train operator Thalys.

The train between Paris and Amsterdam collided with the animal at Tourpes (Leuze-en-Hainaut), and was unable to continue after the collision.

The passengers travelling on the train which collided with the wild boar had to be evacuated.

According to an update from Thalys, delays are ongoing, and are expected to continue for the rest of Tuesday.
