A man was found dead on Tuesday at developer Canary Wharf Group’s One Bank Street site next to Heron Quays DLR station.

Emergency services were called to the scene shortly before 9am on Tuesday morning, as many people in the area were returning to work after the Christmas and New Year break.

A spokesperson for the London Ambulance Service said the man was declared dead at the scene.

In a statement to CM, Canary Wharf Group, said: “We are saddened by the loss of a life on the construction site of One Bank Street and our thoughts are with the individual’s family and friends at this time. We will continue to work closely with the relevant authorities who are investigating the incident.”

Canary Wharf Group is currently constructing the 27-storey One Bank Street tower, which includes office space and art trading space.
