A Kenyan airport cleaner has been identified as the stowaway who fell into a south London garden from a flight bound for Heathrow.
The man was thought to have been nestled in the landing gear of a Kenya Airways flight when he fell from the aircraft and landed just feet away from a sunbather in Clapham on June 30.
Scotland Yard launched an appeal to find the man, including an e-fit and details about the items he was carrying, leading him to be identified by family and friends in Kenya.
An investigation by Sky News concluded the victim was likely to be Paul Manyasi, a cleaner who worked for little pay at Jomo Kenyatta International airport.
His girlfriend told the broadcaster she had last seen him on the morning of June 30 while they were both working together at the airport.
She said: “I called his phone and it was off. When we came in the morning the following day the supervisor called us and told us there is somebody missing.”
