The Coroner's Office
Newham District

Dear Sirs

The Newham Coroner's comes under your direct remit, hence, it behoves your office to deal with my FOIA request and provide me with a copy of the coroner's report into the Balfour Beatty unknown employee who committed suicide at the Olympic Stadium on Sun 28th June 2015. The Met Police confirmed to me yesterday via the FOIA that the Balfour Beatty Empolyee committed suicide.

With thanks

Yours sincerely

Alan Dransfield
