A large tree fell was knocked down by strong winds last night in Chislehurst and almost hit a house.

The tree came down in Willow Vale and is now blocking access to the home.

Bromley Council came and cleared the tree this morning with the help of tree surgeons Gristwood and Toms.

Volunteer group Chislehurst Town Team praised the speed in which the council dealt with the fallen tree.

The group said: "Excellent service by @LBofBromley & @gristwood_toms clearing fallen tree so quickly after #stormaileen"
