Health & Safety Executive officials are investigating what caused the man to fall from the eight-storey Carlton Tower building – an office block on Upper Richmond Road that is being converted into plush apartments as part of St James’ Langham Square Development. They are preparing a report for the coroner.

Two other workers were injured when Mr Kopickas landed on them.
