Tony Scott in his first film role

Hollywood director Tony Scott, famous for films including Top Gun, has died after jumping from a bridge in Los Angeles, authorities have said.

The Los Angeles County Coroner's office said Scott's death was being investigated as a suicide.

British-born Scott, brother of Alien director Ridley, shot to fame in the 1980s with a string of action films.

But in his first film role he starred as a truant schoolboy in his brother's 1965 film, Boy and Bicycle.

Funded by the British Film Institute, the entire 28-minute film is available to watch on The Space.
