They tweeted: "**30mph speeds** on the #QE2 bridge due to high winds. Please proceed with caution. Updates to follow."

The high winds have also brought disruption to train services, with passengers have been warned to expect disruption throughout today after the Met Office issued a yellow weather warning for wind.

Southeastern has made changes to routes "because of the potential risks to trains of falling trees," while speed restrictions have been put in place by Network Rail.
