Strong winds have caused the closure of Creek Road in Deptford as scaffolding has fallen off a building seeing demolition.
The block of flats saw extensive damage from a fire in April 2022 and was in the process of being dismantled.
Long queues are building up on Creek Road with buses also hampered by delays.
Scaffolding also landed on and is blocking Cycleway 4.

UPDATE: Scaffolding at the rear has now blown over.
