A suspected stowaway who is believed to have fallen from the landing gear of a flight into Heathrow Airport has been found dead in a London garden.
The body – believed to be that of a man – was found in Clapham.
Police said the individual is believed to have fallen from a Kenya Airways flight from Nairobi.
A neighbour said the man fell a metre away from a resident who had been sunbathing in the garden.
The Met Police said a post-mortem examination will be carried out in due course and his death was not being treated as suspicious.
A bag, water and some food were found in the landing gear compartment on the aircraft when it landed.
It is not the first death of this kind on the Heathrow flight path.
In June 2015, one man was found dead on the roof of notonthehighstreet.com’s headquarters on Kew Road, Richmond, while another was found in a critical condition after they both clung on to a British Airways flight from Johannesburg.
In August 2012, a man’s body was found in the undercarriage bay of a plane at Heathrow after a flight from Cape Town.
