Winds of more than 100mph in places wreaked havoc across England over Easter as Storm Katie left a crane partially collapsed.
Bouygues said it was undertaking a full investigation into the incident at Creek Road in Greenwich, south London, which saw the street closed for safety.

A spokesperson for Bouygues UK said: “Following an incident involving a crane at one of our sites in London during recent extreme adverse weather conditions, we can confirm that there were no injuries; the area has been secured; we have been working closely with the emergency services and kept the relevant authorities informed. Despite the continued poor weather conditions, it has been our prime objective to secure the crane and we can confirm this has been done so in a safe and very controlled manner. We have now commenced our investigation to establish the cause of the incident and we remain committed to working alongside the HSE in this respect.”
The QE2 Bridge at the Dartford Crossing was also closed due to high winds and there was flight disruption at both Heathrow and Gatwick airports.
