The boss of a trouble-ridden steel company has fallen to his death from his penthouse flat in an apparent suicide.

A 45-year old man, believed to be Angad Paul - boss of Caparo, was pronounced dead at the scene in central London.

Police have not officially identified the body as Mr Paul, but have informed his next of kin. His death is being treated as "non-suspicious" as inquiries continue.

Caparo fell into administration last month and recently announced 450 job cuts, with another 1,200 jobs uncertain.
