Winds on the Isle of Dogs caused a huge tree to fall into the road, blocking traffic. 

Westferry Road was partially blocked yesterday afternoon (April 15) just after 5.30pm after the tree fell across one lane heading towards Mile End and Limehouse. 

The news came after a weather warning for London was issued by the Met Office that same day.
