Trees are down in Rush Green Road, Romford, Hilldene Avenue, Harold Hill, Kingsbridge Road, Harold Hill and Billet Lane, Hornchurch. There are also reports of damage to fences, roofs and gardens.

The weather remains blowy this morning and the Met Office is maintaining its “amber warning” for wind, meaning a “high impact” is moderately likely.

A statement on the Met Office website reads: “The public should be prepared for the risk of falling trees as well as damage to buildings and other structures, bringing disruption to transport and power supplies.

“The public should also consider adjusting travel plans.”
