A technology expert has died after falling from JP Morgan's headquarters building.

Gabriel Magee, 39, worked for the company for 10 years and was vice-president in CIB Technology.

He was pronounced dead after falling on to the ninth-floor roof of the banking giant's building in Canary Wharf, east London, shortly after 8am today.

A JP Morgan spokeswoman said: "We are deeply saddened to have lost a member of the JP Morgan family at 25 Bank Street today. Our thoughts and sympathy are with his family and his friends."

Police have confirmed that his death is not being treated as suspicious.

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.

A London Ambulance Service spokesman said: "We were called at 8.04am to Bank Street to reports of a person fallen from a height.

"We sent one ambulance crew, a duty officer, our hazardous area response team and London Air Ambulance to the scene.

"Sadly, a man in his 30s was pronounced dead at the scene."
