At about 8am on Monday, police were called to St Andrew’s car park, on Duke Street, following concerns for the welfare of a man, who was reportedly threatening to self harm.

Police negotiatiors, medical advisors and further specially-trained officers attended the scene and were in constant communication with the man.

The incident saw a heavy emergency service presence in the city for more than 12 hours.

At about 11.45pm, the man fell from the building and was pronounced dead at the scene.

A police spokesman said his death was being treated as unexplained and was not believed to be suspicious.
