A fallen tree has crushed a car in Hornsey as hurricane-force winds continue to cause havoc across the borough.
The black Volkswagen Polo was severely damaged after a huge tree, which was up-rooted by the St Jude storm, fell on the parked car in Hornsey Lane, Highgate.
Another tree fell on a car near Stationers Park, in Crouch End. Nobody is believed to have been injured in either incident.
There have also been reports of Shepherd’s Hill Road being closed because a fallen tree is blocking the street.
Earlier today, Green Lanes, in Wood Green, was closed after a tree fell on a double-decker bus near Turnpike Lane Station.
Trees also fell in Muswell Hill and Tottenham.
Piccadilly Line trains were suspended after a tree fell on the track in Acton, west London, and there have been reports of people being turned away from Wood Green Station.
There are large queues for buses and the Overground services have been suspended for the rest of the day.
Train operator First Capital Connect has announced that all services from Finsbury Park and Seven Sisters Station are currently suspended until further notice.
This is due to trees and overhead structures blocking the railway at a number of locations.
