Trees were felled, properties were damaged, and railway services were disrupted as Storm Eunice swept across Barnet on Friday.

A rare red weather warning was in place for London with the Met Office warning of a 'danger to life' because of flying debris as a result of strong winds.

There were no reports of any deaths in the borough as a result of a storm but a woman in his 30s lost her life in Highgate after a tree fell onto the car she was a passenger in.

In Barnet, photos showed trees down including in High Barnet, Mill Hill, and Golders Green,

Police attended one tree that fell down right across a road by Ravenscroft Park in High Barnet. There were no reports of any injuries.

In Golders Green, Labour councillor Alan Schneiderman captured scaffolding that had fallen down in North End Road.

His photo showed that it had shattered the rear window of a Honda and damaged its roof but said no one had been hurt.

Elsewhere in Golders Green, an area near the station was taped off because of fallen trees.

Barnet Council said Hendon Cemetery was closed during the storm and some parks were taped off to be inspected to ensure they were safe. Some bin collections were impacted and recycling centres were shut.

The council says there was one incident of a collapsed building in a cul-de-sac. The elderly homeowner was taken away safely by her family and the site has been assessed by a structural engineer and cornered off.

There is also a crushed car due to falling debris from the building. The council says at least five more cases of dangerous structures were reported, adding a temporary roof stand at Saracens stadium in Mill Hill partially collapsed.

There were lots of problems on the railways with Thameslink, which runs services via Mill and Hendon, requesting people don't travel.

There was a 50mph speed limit in place and issued to contend with such as a billboard down at Hendon and a tree over the track further up the line in Radlett.

Meanwhile in Potters Bar, the high street was shut because of concerns about scaffolding, while Potters Bar Town FC has started a fundraiser after a stand that was installed in 2019 was damaged, along with the home dugout and storage unit.
