A busy road in Bromley was closed both ways earlier because of a fallen tree. 

Sundridge Avenue was blocked from Logs Hill to Wood Lodge Gardens.

The road is now open and bus routes have returned to normal.

Paul Smith was walking to Elmstead Wood station this morning when he took a dramatic photo. 

News Shopper:

He told News Shopper he walked round it before a creak led to the whole tree falling down. 

Paul said he was "very lucky really" and said the tree fell at around 6.43am. 

TFL say the bus route 314 was diverted both ways via White Horse Hill, Red Hill, High St, Centre Common Rd, Bromley Road, Summer Hill, Bickley Park Rd and Plaistow Lane.

We will update you with any more information.

Traffic is building on the A222 Bromley Road / Bromley Lane at A208 Royal Parade by the war memorial traffic lights. 

Bromley Council's tree care contractors are at Sundridge Avenue supporting the clean up operation. 

The operation is now complete and the road is back open.
