At 7.50am on Sunday, June 10, police were called due to concern for the welfare of a man on the roof of the shopping centre.

Police officers, specialist police negotiators, air ambulance, and two fire crews attended the scene, but shortly after 9am the man fell from the building.

The man, who is in his 30s, suffered serious injuries, and was taken to Royal London Hospital for further treatment.

While the incident was being dealt with, Cavendish Way was closed off, and reopened later the same day.
