By 1800 TfL said that there had been some branches down but that both lanes had now been cleared.

Part of Chiswick High Road was also closed off.At 17.30, the M4 was reported to be slow moving out of London between Junction 1 (Chiswick) and Junction 2 (Brentford
Initial reports suggested that the disruption was caused by branches from a damaged tree and work continued to clear the area of debris between Junction 1 and Wellesley Road.
Long traffic delays were reported from drivers coming towards Chiswick from Mortlake and Kew from 4 pm onwards. This was despite the reopening of the Hogarth Roundabout flyover which should have eased traffic flow along the A316.
Buses on diversion along CHR, the 237, the 391 and the 267 were reported back on their normal routing by 17.30.
BBC London Travel news reported one lane shut between the M4 and A3000 ( Wellesley Road area) due to a damaged tree.
