The family of a man who died after falling from an upper floor within the London Stock Exchange in Paternoster Square (EC4), have issued a tribute and a photograph.


Christopher Woolnough, 56, from Braintree, Essex, died as a result of the incident which took place shortly after 10am on Tuesday, 15 August 2017.

“He will be missed dearly by his family, friends and girlfriend. The world has lost a kind, gentle and caring man.
