The body of a stowaway was found in the garden of a south London home after falling from a jet as it passed overhead.

Police and airline officials say the man fell from the landing gear of the plane as it approached London’s Heathrow Airport after a nine-hour flight from Nairobi, Kenya.

The Metropolitan Police force confirmed the body of an unidentified man was found in a south London garden on Sunday, and it’s believed he fell from a plane.

He has not yet been identified and his age is also not known as this stage, authorities said.

A bag, water and food were discovered in the plane’s landing-gear compartment.

The unnamed man was found in the residential property in Clapham, south London, at around 3.30pm, police said.
