London woman was among at least five killed in Storm Eunice as severe winds wreaked havoc across the UK and Ireland on Friday.

Millions of people were urged to stay at home due to safety fears over the impact of Storm Eunice; it was one of the worst storms to hit the UK in a generation.

A woman in her 30s died after a tree fell on a car in Haringey shortly after 4pm in England’s first confirmed fatality from the storm.

The driver – a man in his 30s – has been taken to hospital but his condition is not believed to be life-threatening.

Pictures taken at the scene showed a large fallen tree blocking the road, with a crowd gathered around.

Officers believe they know the woman’s identity and her family have been informed.

They will be supported by specialist officers.

Mayor Sadiq Khan said: “I’d like to pay tribute to all those in the emergency services who have been working tirelessly to keep us safe and urge all Londoners to remain cautious and avoid taking risks as this storm passes.

“My thoughts and prayers are with the families of the woman who tragically lost her life and the man who was seriously injured in Highgate this afternoon.”

It came just hours after a man in Co Wexford, Ireland, was also killed by a falling tree.

He was later confirmed to be a worker at Wexford County Council who had been attending the scene of a fallen tree in the North Wexford area.

Elsewhere in England, a man in his 50s was killed in Netherton, Merseyside after debris struck the windscreen of a car he was travelling in.

And a 79-year-old British man died in Ypres, Beligum after he fell from his boat at a marina on a waterway, local media reported.
