Overturned lorry on the Lewisham Way Pic: Alastair Norton A man was injured after a lorry smashed into a wall and was left precariously balanced on Lewisham Way as high winds battered New Cross today (February 23). The road has been closed in both directions after the police, ambulance service and the fire brigade rushed to the scene near Shardeloes Road.

Constable Caine of the Metropolitan Police told ELL: “It’s unclear if it was wind related or just a crash”. He was unable to provide further comment at this time. The lorry is being supported by a metal pole to stop it being blown over by strong winds caused by Storm Doris; already causing chaos nationwide.
