Storm Eunice has brought several trees down in Chiswick and Acton.

A young tree has come down by St Michael & All Angels Church at the west end of the church overlooking The Avenue and Acton Green Common. Thanks to Peter Murray for the photograph. Another larger tree, taken by Andrew Walmsley, is blocking The Orchard in Bedford Park.

A big tree fell across Acton Lane in front of Ark Priory primary school this morning. Fortunately it is half term or the road outside the primary school would have been full of children and parents. This is the damage it did to the car it fell on.

Dougal also sent us this amazing shot of a broken tree suspended precariously outside Ark Byron Primary Academy in The Vale.

A fallen tree is also now resting on the roof of Turnham Green tube station.

Parks in the area have been closed because of the danger of falling trees. Kew Gardens, Chiswick House and Gunnersbury Park all announced they would be closing on Friday 18 February as storm Eunice blows through.

The storm has also brought down quite a few fences, including this one in Bedford Park.
