Just a quick update to the story we ran a few days ago on the man who died after falling from the top of the Shell building near Waterloo.

At the time the death was presumed to be a suicide but according to this report it seems what actually happened was a tragic accident involving a pensioner who had worked at the Shell Tower for most of his life:

Reg Grogan, 75, who had worked at the Shell Tower for 40 years returned to take pictures as a memento to his working life.

He was visiting a viewing gallery at the top of the south London landmark, but as he leant forward to focus in on the stunning view including Big Ben, Westminster and the London Eye, the grandad is thought to have toppled over the chest-high barrier.

Mr Grogan's son has said that he and the rest of the family are satisfied that the accident was not Shell's fault and the roll of film found in the camera is now being analysed to see if it can give a clearer indication of exactly what happened.
