The 32-year-old had been living in the Cygnet Health Care high dependency mental health unit in Lewisham, south London.

Poplar Coroner Mary Hassell adjourned the inquest until July for further investigation.

A second man, believed to be in his fifties, fell to his death less than 24 hours later in the Canary Wharf shopping centre, which is just a few minutes walk from where Otote died.

Jordan Bruin, a manager at a nearby clothing shop, described hearing “the loudest bang and a lot of screaming” at 8:40 am on Tuesday.

London Air Ambulance was scrambled to the scene but was unable to save the man.
