St Paul ’ s Cathedral has been here for over 1,400 years. For more than 1,400 years, a Cathedral dedicated to St Paul has stood at the highest point in the City. The present Cathedral is the masterpiece of Britain' s most famous architect Sir Christopher Wren.

She said: “There has been a post-mortem examination and the doctor has proposed the medical cause of death was multiple injuries, including a severe head injury.”

His death is being treated as non-suspicious and the inquest will be continued when further evidence has been gathered, she said.

Stayton’s family, in a tribute issued through City of London Police, said: “We are all in deep shock at the loss of our beautiful, talented and intelligent son.

“He had a deep passion for history and revelled in sharing his knowledge with others.

“He truly was a young gentleman, always willing to help others where he could.

Notre-Dame 'will be closed for 5-6 years', bishop says

Notre-Dame 'will be closed for 5-6 years', bishop says Notre-Dame Cathedral "will be closed for five to six years" as it recovers from a disastrous fire, its rector has said. © Getty The inside of Notre-Dame after the fire Bishop Patrick Chauvet made the admission as he spoke to local business owners two days after a blaze that destroyed its roof and spire and left it mere minutes from total collapse. France's Prime Minister Edouard Philippe has launched a competition for international architects to rebuild the spire of Notre-Dame Cathedral.

Old St Paul ' s Cathedral was the medieval cathedral of the City of London that, until 1666, stood on the site of the present St Paul ' s Cathedral . Built from 1087 to 1314 and dedicated to Saint Paul , the cathedral was the fourth church on the site at Ludgate Hill.

St Paul ' s Survives is a photograph taken in London during the night air raid of 29/30 December 1940, the 114th night of the Blitz of World War II. It shows St Paul ' s Cathedral , illuminated by fires and surrounded by the smoke of burning buildings.

“Words cannot adequately express the devastation we feel, nor the love we have for him. The world is inarguably a lesser place without JJ.”

Stayton’s death comes 18 months after figure skater Lidia Dragescu, 23, died after falling from the same gallery.

The Whispering Gallery is so-called due to a quirk in its construction, which makes a whisper against its walls audible on the opposite side.
