Strong winds blew through Havering last night as Storm Barney made its away across the south east.
IWitness contributor Barry Jones sent the Recorder these pictures of a tree blown over in Brendans Close, Hornchurch.
He said the fallen tree blocked garages, but was swiftly removed by the emergency services.
A yellow weather was in place across the south east, with forecasters predicting winds of up to 70mph, until 2am today (Wednesday).
Storm Barney is the second storm to be named under the “name our storms” project by the Met Office and Met Eireann, which asked the public to suggest names.
