A man who died in a fall from JP Morgan's headquarters in London yesterday has been named as Gabriel Magee, a senior IT programmer at the firm.

The 39-year-old American had worked for the investment bank for ten years in both New York and London and was vice president in CIB Technology at the time of his death.

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

Emergency services were called to the bank's 33-storey building in Canary Wharf yesterday morning at 8am, where Magee was pronounced dead at the scene by London Ambulance Service paramedics.

A police spokesman said yesterday evening that they were called to the scene on reports of a man having fallen from 25 Bank Street, landing on a neighbouring ninth floor roof.

"No arrests have been made and the incident is being treated as non-suspicious at this early stage. Constables from Tower Hamlets are investigating the circumstances," they said. ®
