No injuries this afternoon after a large piece of roof cladding was blown off a building in high winds.
The very loud bang of the cladding hitting the ground initially led to wild reports of a shooting near All Saints DLR. No shooting. (And no fire either.)
East India Dock Road at its junction with Chrisp Street was closed to pedestrians, vehicles and the railway line closed to trains as there was a risk that another piece of cladding could fall off.
Anyone being hit by that would be killed, or at the very least have their day ruined.
Traffic began to flow again at approximately 16.00 hours.
