Police say that they were called to the scene at just after 11am to reports of a man seen to have fallen from the viewing gallery at the Shell Centre.

A body could be seen covered by a blue blanket directly outside the Belvedere Road entrance to the Shell Centre.

Lambeth CID are investigating but officers say that they are not treating the death as suspicious.

Sources indicate that suicide is considered to be a strong possibility.
