Hurricane Gonzalo killed a woman in London this week after remnants from the storm toppled trees and triggered strong rain and winds.

London Ambulance Service say paramedics tried to resuscitate the woman but she was pronounced dead at the scene in the Knightsbridge area, according to The Associated Press.

Several other people across the country were injured by falling branches, and the wind brought down trees onto railway lines.

The Meteorological Office said wind gusts were expected to hit 70 mph in coastal areas.

Heathrow Airport canceled about 100 flights, and some ferry crossings between Britain and Ireland were called off.

Gonzalo battered Bermuda last week with sustained winds of 110 mph before dumping heavy rain on the Canadian province of Newfoundland and then heading out over the Atlantic.
