Police in the UK have launched an investigation after a man’s body was found in London’s Canary Wharf financial district.
The man was found in a trench beneath a skyscraper on Bank Street in the city’s financial hub on Tuesday morning. London’s ambulance service confirmed the man was dead when they arrived at the scene.
A spokesman for the Metropolitan police told RT.com officers have no reason to believe the man’s death is suspicious, however they are waiting to hand over the body to the coroner to determine the precise course of the investigation.
Property company Canary Wharf Group confirmed on Twitter that the body was found on one of its construction sites. The statement added that all of their workers are safe.
There has been a fatality at one of our construction sites, all our construction workers are safe and we are supporting the investigation being led by the emergency services.
