A three-year-old girl had a lucky escape when she fell from a window but was not hurt.
Paramedics were called to an address in Westwood Road, Seven Kings just after 4pm on Sunday.
The London Air Ambulance, which landed in the car park of Homebase, also responded to the emergency call as did the hazardous area response team.
The London Ambulance Service said the girl was taken to Queen’s Hospital, Romford as a priority and was “conscious and breathing”.
A next door neighbour said: “I was on my way out when a paramedic knocked on my door and said he needed to get through to the back garden. He said a baby had fallen.
