Distraught colleagues of Gabriel Magee, who died after falling from JP Morgan's Bank Street tower, are being offered counselling by the company.

Staff also held a minute's silence for the 39-year-old IT exec on Wednesday morning.

Gabriel died after falling on to a ninth floor roof at about 8am on Tuesday. Police are not treating the incident as suspicious.

Friends and co-workers of Gabriel paid tribute to the American who had been employed by the firm since 2004 and was vice president in technology.

Joshua Konstadt, who worked with him at JP Morgan in New York, told the Independent: "It is a terrible, tragic loss. He has a lot of friends in New York that are very confused and very sad right now.

"He was a co-worker and a very good friend. A very smart guy, with a great sense of humour."

A spokeswoman for JP Morgan said employees of the firm were being supported with on-site counselling throughout Wednesday and the company had paid respects to Gabriel with a period of silence.
