METAR Question

Was flying into London Gatwick earlier this afternoon, and read this METAR. What does 4000W mean? I understand everything else, just that bit I’ve never seen before. Anyone know? Couldn’t find anything online.

The minimum visibility is 4000m to the West

Oh, right. I thought it’d be something about the visibility, just wasn’t sure what. Thank you! :)
