A MAN IN his 30s has died after falling from a London skyscraper this morning.

Scotland Yard police said they were called the office tower in Canary Wharf at 8.02am this morning following reports that a man had fallen from the building and landed on a ninth floor roof.

Emergency services arrived shortly afterwards. The man was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Metropolitan Police said the identity of the 39-year-old man is known but is pending ahead of formal identification.

“No arrests have been made and the incident is being treated as non-suspicious at this early stage,” police said in a statement.

The building is the European headquarters of investment bank JP Morgan.
