French railway operator warns of transport chaos

The French railway operator, SNCF, has warned about major transport chaos on Thursday, with only one in 10 trains running as normal.

Around half of Eurostar trains, including 16 between Paris and London, have already been cancelled, according to the company's website. Also striking are employees of RATP, which runs Paris' public transport system.

Air travel will be also affected. Three of the unions representing ground crew for Air France have joined the strike, along with air traffic control staff. 20% of flights, most of them short-haul, have been cancelled on Thursday.

    Just fire the workers and have the Army run the trains until new workers can be trained
