City Worker dies after 10-storey fall near London Bridge

A 23-year-old city worker died last week after falling ten storeys from his workplace rooftop near London Bridge.

Josh Jones was pronounced dead at the scene after falling to the pavement in the More London business complex, where he worked as a graduate associate at PwC.

The incident took place at around 7.45pm on Thursday, when the area was packed with workers and tourists.

The University of Surrey graduate was described as a “great friend” by former teammates on the university’s hockey team, where he acted as the third team captain.

A statement from the club said: “With great sadness we say goodbye to former captain Josh Jones. A team mate to some. A great friend to many more. Gone too soon but will never be forgotten.”

Flowers, cards and football shirts were left at the scene of the incident.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: “Police were called to More London Riverside, London Bridge, junction with Tooley Street at 7.45pm on Thursday July 30 following reports of a man fallen.”

Police are not treating the incident as suspicious.
