A man’s body thought to have been a stowaway believed to have fallen from an airplane has been found in a south London garden.
Officers were called to Offerton Road in South London at 3.39 pm on Sunday following the discovery by a resident.
It is thought the body fell from the landing gear of a Kenya Airways flight about to land at Heathrow airport.
“We were called to a home in Clapham in south London on Sunday after the body was found,” London’s Metropolitan Police said.
A bag, water and some food were discovered in the lower compartment of the pane, Met Police said.
A post-mortem will be carried out in due course but the death is not being treated as suspicious.
In a statement, police said, “At this point, police believe the man was a stowaway and had fallen from the landing gear of an inbound Kenya Airways flight to Heathrow Airport.”
