A man has died after falling seven floors down a chimney in Westminster.
The 20-year-old man is believed to have been sitting on the roof of the building when he fell backwards into the chimney.
The man’s body was found at the base of the chimney in the lower basement of the building.
Next of kin have been informed and police are waiting for a formal identification to take place.
The death will be referred to the coroner, a police spokesman said.
Inspector Ian Bond, of Westminster Police, said: “Our thoughts are with the young man’s family at this sad time."
