A man in his 50s died after being impaled by metal railings following a 60ft fall from the window of a penthouse flat in central London.
Firefighters had to cut through the 5ft railings before the victim’s body could be removed.

A man, believed aged in his early 50’s, was pronounced dead at the scene. The death is not being treated as suspicious at this time.”
