A man was reported to have been sitting outside Le Bouchon Bordelais, a French restaurant and bar in Battersea Rise when apparently the awning collapsed and he was struck by falling masonry.  Sadly he was pronounced dead at the scene by emergency workers. The police have advised that it is not linked to this weeks disturbances as the area concerned was not affected.

I expect that both the metropolitan police, the Health and Safety Executive and the local authority will investigate this incident in order to determine whether any criminal charges should be brought against the buildings owners.  If he has a spouse or other dependants, they may wish to instruct a solicitor to consider whether there are grounds for a civil claim for damages following this poor chap's death.
