A man fell to his death from an upper storey of Herbert Morrison House on the Clem Attlee estate this Monday (1 April).

Emergency services were called to the scene at 12.30pm with a London’s Air Ambulance helicopter landing on Normand Park.

Despite the efforts of paramedics, the man was pronounced dead at the scene.

The police have said they continue to investigate the death and are making attempts to contact next of kin but they are not treating it as suspicious and no other persons are believed to be involved.

Local MP Greg Hand was in the vicinity at the time and he offered his condolences to the man’s family and friends on social media.
