Most unlikely

We need a much closer view of the tree, but I see nothing resembling Porina rosei, which is a very rare species of ancient oaks, etc. in unpolluted areas, best known in the New Forest but with a few other scattered records in western Britain now. Chances of it being in London are virtually zero.
