Travel Insurance for Train Strikes

I am travelling with Eurostar in December but have to get to St Pancras before.
I know the chances are slim, but does anybody know of any travel insurance that would cover the cancellation of the short break ( to Brussels) if I couldn't get to St Pancreas by train if there were strikes?
Many thanks.

    pretty much any travel insurance will cover you for delay or abandonment of trip due to industrial action.

    It could cover unexpected strikes, but when a series of strikes have been announced and the action is ongoing it would be less clear-cut I would think. 
    CIV tickets to connect with Eurostar guarantee being put on another train if there is a delay, so maybe that would let you travel the next day if there were no trains running.
