A man has died after falling from the roof of JP Morgan's European headquarters in Canary Wharf.

Emergency services were called to 25 Bank Street at around 8am this morning following reports of a man falling from the 500ft building and landing on a ninth floor roof.

The man, who is believed to be in his 30s, was pronounced dead at the scene, the Metropolitan Police said.

"We believe we know the identity of the deceased but we await formal identification", a police spokesman said.

London Ambulance Service and London Air Ambulance were called to the scene and an area around the building has been cordoned off.

The building in London's financial district has been the headquarters of the bank's Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) operation since July 2012, according to the company's website.
