Michael Burdin, 50, died when he was hit by a train at Wimbledon station after he lost his job at Bank of America
A devastated City trader threw himself in front of a train after being ‘pressured’ into leaving his job, an inquest heard today.
Michael Burdin took his own life after being told his position as foreign exchange manager was being axed at the multinational 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 Mr 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.
‘He was down because he had not been able to secure positions in the banking sector and had decided to move to Yorkshire.’
‘If he had not lost his job he would still be alive today. I’ve no doubt in my mind the reason Michael took his own life was because he lost his job.’
Mr Burdin was originally from Barnsley, South Yorkshire, but lived in South Africa from the age of six until moving back to Britain in 1997.
Shortly after 1pm on October 31 last year, he was spotted on the track next to platform six at Wimbledon station in south west London as a fast train approached.
Footage from CCTV cameras showed him pacing up and down the empty platform moments before.
Jennifer Cairns, a passenger on another train, said: ‘He crossed his arms in front of him, with a hand on each shoulder.
‘He looked down, towards the oncoming train, and stood there very calmly. The train sped through the platform, and the male disappeared.’
Mr Burdin was struck by a train that was not due to stop at Wimbledon and was pronounced dead at the scene.

A post-mortem examination, which found a low level of alcohol in his bloodstream, gave the cause of death as multiple injuries.
Records from his GP surgery showed no evidence he had ever complained of depression.
Ms Sroka said the couple had enjoyed dinner together the night before his death, and had ‘a lovely evening.’
‘He seemed fine,’ she said.
The following day she was unable to reach him by phone, and returned to their home in Shepperton, Surrey, to find his mobile phone and wristwatch in their bedroom.
‘I entered the lounge and found a letter addressed to me explaining he was sorry this had happened, and he loved me very much.’

She said: ‘I entered the lounge and found a letter addressed to me explaining he was sorry this had happened, and he loved me very much.’
Recording a verdict of suicide, Deputy Coroner Dr Shirley Radcliffe said: ‘It’s a very difficult age for a male who has lost their job.
‘Psychiatrists will tell you 50-year-old men who have concerns about work and finances are a particularly vulnerable community, even if they have got no psychiatric illness.
‘Mr Burdin had lost his job, or had given it up, because of pressure and had difficulty finding alternative employment.
‘There was obviously thought about his future and moving up north.
‘Although his partner had noticed he had been down, at no point was there major concern and he was reluctant to seek medical help.’
She added: ‘The driver had no opportunity to be able to stop the train.
‘Sadly, Mr Burdin was able to avail himself of a fast moving train, and I’ve no doubt that’s what he intended to do.’
