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 Offerton Road, Clapham just before 15:40 BST on Sunday.
“Believed to be that of a man” strikes me as a 50-50 shot, give or take.
Police said it was thought the individual fell from a Kenya Airways flight from Nairobi.
A neighbour said the body fell a metre away from a resident who had been sunbathing in the garden.
Still, I have to tip my hat, such as it is, to someone who tries to hang on for dear life for over 4200 miles.
