Brent Council has put up a useful list of areas where trees have fallen down as a result of the overnight storms.
Some areas seem to be more heavily affected than others and Dudden Hill is in particular affected with quite a few trees having fallen down around the Gladstone Park Primary School area.
In the Neasden area, brick fences have come down and wooden fences too. I’m sure they have in other areas too. Tanfield Avenue which is a major travel and bus route for commuters and school children has also been affected by a fallen tree.
There were also morning disruptions on the Jubilee line with items on the track having to be cleared.

A common criticism cited on the doorstep is “You only come around when you want our votes”.
In fact I still get it now. I remember speaking to a resident on Denzil Road during the Summer who was taken back when I told her “but I was only elected last year and there’s three years to go until the next Council elections!”

Following the riots, we led with the local Police teams to speak to businesses in the Neasden Shopping Centre and Church Road to give them reassurance when they were feeling vulnerable.
Aslam and I provided reassurance to residents on Sonia Gardens after the tragic fire incident on Sonia Gardens and arranged for additional traffic management on behalf of the Crest Academy given the additional interest around the school during this period.
