A tree has fallen on the train tracks at Albany Park - causing a number of rail delays around the area.

The tree is blocking the line towards Gravesend and Slade Green so trains cannot run on this route.

This means trains between Sidcup and Crayford or Dartford might be cancelled, delayed or revised.

Disruption is expected until 4pm.

Southeastern said that due to the "overhang and size of the tree" a specialist team is on-site with a chainsaw to make the line safe to reopen.

If travelling to the Sidcup Line, National Rail has advised passengers to catch a service to Dartford or Slade Green, to then change for alternative trains running up the Sidcup Line towards London.

If travelling from the Sidcup Line, catch a train to Lewisham, where you can change for alterative trains to Slade Green or Dartford.

National Rail is also advising passengers to check before travelling. 

The disruption comes as Storm Arwen batters the UK - with wind speeds up to 100mph.

Two people died as a result of trees falling over in Lancaster and County Antrim.

Here's the hour-by-hour Met Office forecast for London.
