A witness said he performed CPR on the "already unconscious" victim.

Will, who did not want to give his full name, told the BBC: "There were a number of people around him when I got down there, but nobody was doing anything.

"With the aid of the operator on the phone, I performed CPR. But I think he was already dead then."

A woman called Martha said people at the scene "couldn't really talk, everyone was in shock".
