A stowaway fell from a plane’s landing gear as it approached Heathrow Airport and was found dead in a garden after landing “one metre” from a sunbather.
The man’s body was found in Offerton Road in Clapham, south London on Sunday afternoon, police said.
In a statement, officers said “police believe the man was a stowaway and had fallen from the landing gear of an inbound Kenya Airways flight to Heathrow Airport”.
The dead man landed in a garden in Clapham, South London, 27 kilometres from the airport, scaring the owner of the house, who immediately called the police.
The Police later found a bag containing food and clothing in the rear left landing gear in the plane.
Scotland Yard spokesman said that the man was believed to be a stowaway and had fallen from the landing gear of an inbound Kenya Airways flight to Heathrow Airport.
He added that the identity of the man is yet to be determined.
Kenya Airways said the aircraft had been inspected and no damage was reported.
