His next of kin have been informed and are being supported by specialist officers.

An autopsy is still being performed.

Detective Chief Inspector Catherine Goodwin, who is leading the investigation, said: “We believe a number of people may have been exposed to the incident and some bystanders may have recorded the footage on their mobile phones.

“Anyone who has yet to speak to us is urged to come forward immediately.

“My team is working to provide answers to the family of the deceased and members of the public who may have valuable information that will assist our investigation.”

Richmond Policing Lead Chief Superintendent Lis Chapple added: “My thoughts are with the man and his family.

“We will do everything we can to support our colleagues in specialist crime as they work to establish what happened here.

“A scene will remain in place and my officers will be on scene and in the area to speak to local people about any concerns they may have or information they would like to share.”
