Police have confirmed that a death has occurred at the 2012 Olympic Stadium site, which is in the process of being transformed into legacy use.
The Metropolitan Police said the incident, which occured on Sunday 28 June, was being treated as non-suspicious.
Balfour Beatty is converting the stadium from the centrepiece of the London Games to the home of West Ham United Football Club, an event venue for UK Athletics and for other uses including the Rugby World Cup.
The work includes installing the largest single span cantilever roof in the world; constructing the warm-up track, spectator and hospitality facilities; and external landscaping.
Balfour Beatty said in a statement this morning: “There was a fatality at the former Olympic Stadium site yesterday morning. We worked fully with the police while they carried out their enquiries, which concluded yesterday.
“Work has resumed on site this morning. Our thoughts remain with the individual’s family, friends and colleagues.”
