Jamie Newall, NW6: "We lost a lot of slates and our chimney stack just stopped short of going through the roof! No injuries, but several thousands pounds of repairs."

Bilmal Patel, Kensal Rise resident: "Our house seem to miss most of the damage, but our garden is ruined. And we have a trampoline on top of our small shed!"
