Storm Katie wreaked havoc across south west London this weekend, causing traffic chaos, bringing down trees and cancelling Easter celebrations.

Across the country about 100,000 homes were left without power, motorways closed and one man is feared dead after his kayak overturned in the River Wey in Guildford.

The storm hit in the early hours of yesterday morning.

In south west London fortunately no-one has been reported injured or missing, but the storm – with winds reaching as high as 70mph - still left its mark.

In Croydon, police and firefighters were called to Berne Road in Thornton Heath after gales tore down scaffolding fixed to a house.

The road was shut after a specialist removal team were called to the structure, which police said was in a "very dangerous condition".

In Wimbledon firefighters were called yesterday morning when a section of a flat roof was blown off between North Road and Merton High Street.

Meanwhile the Morden Hall Park National Health Trust cancelled its Easter egg hunt due to “high winds and downed trees”.

Firefighters and 999 control officers responded to more than 110 Storm Katie incidents due to high winds.

A theme reported across south west London...

Trains between Croydon and Sutton, London Bridge, Gatwick Airport and Caterham were also delayed or cancelled yesterday morning due to line closures and speed restrictions.

And of course, blown over bins...
