A passenger in a car has been killed by a falling tree as Storm Eunice battered London with gusts of up to 78mph.

The woman, in her 30s, was in a car being driven by a man, also in his 30. He needed hospital treatment.

The tree hit the car in Muswell Hill Road in Haringey, north London, at about 16:00 GMT.

Elsewhere, a man was hurt when a flagstone fell from Mercury House, in Waterloo. A second man was struck by a tree, London Ambulance Service said.

Most London trains are not running due to high winds across the capital. The London Fire Brigade has declared a major incident in response to the number of 999 calls it has received.

The woman died at the scene despite efforts from paramedics and firefighters. Her family has been informed.

Road closures remain in place at the location.
