A man plunged to his death from an upper floor at the London Stock Exchange on Tuesday.
“We were called to the London Stock Exchange… to a report of a man who had fallen from an upper floor in the building,” City of London police said, adding that they were treating the incident as non-suspicious.
“Sadly the patient was dead at the scene,” London’s ambulance service said.
The Sun newspaper said the man landed in the lobby of the stock exchange which is located at Paternoster Square in the heart of London’s financial district.
The London Stock Exchange, which dates its history back to 1698, is one of the world’s oldest stock exchanges. It declined immediate comment.
Some brokers have offices at the exchange’s headquarters.
