A banker has died after jumping 500ft from the top of JP Morgan's headquarters in London this morning.
The man, who is believed to be 39, fell from the 33 floor skyscraper and was found on the ninth floor roof of the Canary Wharf building.
JP Morgan, the world's largest bank by assets, refused to reveal what role the deceased had there, although a source told MailOnline he was a banker.
Police say he was pronounced dead at the scene at 25 Bank Street at just after 8am and are treating the death as 'non-suspicious'.
Canary Wharf workers were in shock today, with one trader telling MailOnline that his body lay there for some time.
'My colleague yelled that he could see that someone had jumped from the roof. His body lay there uncovered for at least two hours.
'Hundreds were looking out of their windows at him.'
JP Morgan's building has been the headquarters of the bank's Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) operation since July 2012.
It used to be owned by Lehman Brothers until its collapse in 2008, and the area houses the headquarters of other banking giants including HSBC and Barclays.
The bank declined to comment on whether the dead man was an employee.
