Old Kent Road was closed throughout Monday morning after a crane collapsed at a building site between Glengall Road and Ossory Road.

Marshalsea Road was also shut for a number of hours due to a damaged tree in Mint Street Park.

The London Bridge Walk footbridge across Tooley Street was shut after the ceiling collapsed.

A section of the Thames Path was closed to pedestrians and boats were unable to call at London Bridge City Pier after a window came loose from the Cottons Centre.

In Blackfriars Road the hoardings around the site of the now-demolished Paper Moon pub collapsed, with debris blown across Christ Church Garden.

Trees were also uprooted on the Tanswell Estate and the Rockingham Estate.

Several trees in Geraldine Mary Harmsworth Park were damaged.

Trees in Lant Street, Willow Walk, Gray Street and Emery Street were also damaged.

Rail services to London Bridge and Waterloo were severely disrupted with very few trains arriving and departing until mid-morning.

The View from the Shard visitor attraction temporarily closed its level 72 open-air viewing gallery during Monday morning.
