Four Romanian thieves disturb TGV traffic in northern France

The circulation of nearly 120 TVGs (High-speed trains) carrying some 35,000 travellers has been disturbed Saturday afternoon after four Romanians stole three kilometres of electric cable at Ronchin, near Lille, according to the online edition of ‘La Voix du Nord.’ Romanians are known for this type of vandalism which becomes increasingly often as copper price goes up. They were arrested at Ronchin, 2:00 am local time . “This is the 36th instance of cable theft since the beginning of the year, French rail operator SNCF reports. Although trains ran Saturday, they slowed down considerably in the 300-metre affected area to ensure passenger safety. This is why the 118 TVGs affected had been late 15 to 20 minutes. The trains affected covered the Lille and Paris-London routes.
