Canary Wharf Death: Man In 50s Killed ‘Falling From Height’ At Shopping Centre

It's the second fatal incident in the area in two days.

A man believed to be in his 50s has died after falling from a height inside a Canary Wharf shopping centre.

Police, paramedics and the London Air Ambulance were called to the location at 8.45am on Tuesday.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene at 9.05am. His next-of-kin have not yet been informed and a cordon remains in place as enquiries continue.
