Regular readers will know that in the Isle of Dogs, many of the old pubs on the Island are facing demolition.
Having noticed that the Anchor and Hope on Westferry Road was being prepared to be demolished, I wandered down to get a few photographs this morning to be faced with a greater tragedy than the pub being demolished.
According to Police reports there was an accident involving a collapsing wall, shortly before 9am. Paramedics were called to the scene but a man, in his 30s, was pronounced dead , 20 minutes later.
The Isle of Dogs is full of building sites and this accident and other recent accidents in London are a grim reminder they can be very dangerous places.
