Just reported:

A man has been found dead at the Olympic Stadium in Stratford.

The 44-year-old, who was working at the site, was discovered unresponsive by police at 7.30am on Sunday after reports of a person having fallen from the stadium.

Ambulances attended but the man was pronounced dead shortly before 8am. His death is being treated as “unexplained”.

Scotland Yard has not named the man but said he was a sub-contractor working at the venue. Officers believe they know his identity and are trying to trace his next of kin.

Just to tidy up this sad story; although almost nothing further has been released about the incident, what was stated on Monday was that it was both "non-suspicious" and (despite the fact that the still-unnamed man was a site contractor) "not being treated as a workplace incident", which I guess means my topic headline is technically wrong.
