A City banker fell to his death through a glass conservatory roof after letting off fireworks an inquest heard Wednesday.

The Daily Mail reports that Lloyds investment banker Clark Boustridge, 30, had climbed onto a roof terrace in Crouch Hill, north London, and went over a low concrete wall while the fireworks exploded.

The New Zealander then tripped and fell through the next door property’s conservatory, although his friends Jacob Kerkin and Sam Gunson managed to climb back to safety.

Boustridge, who had only married his fiancée Sally Coleman last March in her home city of Auckland, suffered a skull fracture and severe neck injuries that killed him instantly last December.

A toxicology report found he had 309mg of alcohol in his blood, plus traces of cocaine, but friends said he showed no signs of being drunk. The legal drink-drive limit is 80mg per 100ml of blood.
