Hundreds of travelers spent the night stranded and starved on a French TGV train after a power failure that saw it arrive at its destination nearly a day late.The train left Hendaye at the Spanish border for Paris, carrying nearly 1,000 passengers despite a peak in Covid-19 infections in France, and was due to arrive on Sunday afternoon after a five-hour journey.

But it stopped in the southwest of the Landes due to a succession of electrical problems on the line, said the national operator SNCF.
