A body fell off the undercarriage of a Kenya Airways aircraft from Nairobi minutes before landing at the Heathrow Airport on Sunday.
The body of the unidentified male stowaway landed in a garden in the Borough of Lambeth, South London.
Body apparently fell off the Kenya Airways Boeing 787-8 flight #KQ100 from Nairobi to London.
Upon inspection, Metropolitan Police found a bag containing some food and clothing at the rear left landing gear.
The aircraft has however been cleared for operation since it was inspected and no damage reported.
“The 6,840km flight takes 8hrs 50mins. It is unfortunate that a person has lost his life by stowing aboard one of our aircraft and we express our condolences,” read the statement.
