A devastated London-based trader threw himself in front of a train after being ‘pressured’ into leaving his job, an inquest heard last week.
The Daily Mail reports that Michael Burdin took his own life after being told his position as FX manager was being axed by Bank of America.
The 50-year-old, who was divorced, had been put under ‘tremendous pressure’ to resign by his employer, Westminster Coroner’s Court heard.
His partner, Mandy Sroka, told the inquest Burdin had been ‘defined by his career’ and was devastated after being put out of work.
‘The way he was treated turned a very articulate man into a shell of a man,’ she said in a statement.
Burdin was struck down by a fast train at Wimbledon station shortly after 1pm on October 31 last year. He had left a note to Ms Sroka at their home in Shepperley.
