Ferry services between Woolwich and North Woolwich are closed this morning because of fog.

It’s not all bad news though because the Met Office say we are in for a sunny day in the south east.

"Patchy mist, fog, or low cloud will soon clear this morning to leave a dry day with spells of sunshine," a statement read.
