Because Eurostar has the same immigration liabilities as airlines do.

at Brussels you only get to see an UK immigration officer once youíve had your ticket checked and gone through security. What does the OP then do if they refuse him - heís got a likely unrefundable Eurostar ticket because he didnít have a valid travel document!

Also I canít remember if Eurostar ask to see your passport as part of their check in process before they let you through security. So they may refuse him too
