Police have released an e-fit of a mystery man who fell from a Kenyan Airways plane and landed in a back garden in south London, close to Heathrow airport in July.The man, believed to be Kenyan, plunged to his death from the landing gear compartment of the Kenyan Airways plane, which took off from Nairobi and went on to land at Heathrow in June.

He fell into a garden in Clapham while former Oxford University student, John Baldock was sunbathing nearby. The body landed partly on concrete paving slabs and partly on a lawn, leaving a crater in the garden.

So far, nobody has been able to identify the “man who fell from the sky”, and this led the Met Police to put together an e-fit picture and appeal for anyone with information.

The stowaway was wearing a blue tracksuit with “Wildcat softball” on it and had a bag with the letters  “MCA” on it. The bag contained drinks bottles and a small amount of Kenyan shillings.A Met Police spokesperson said: “Work continues to establish the man’s identity. Officers believe the man to be Kenyan but are keeping an open mind.”

The man, thought to be in his 30s, fell to earth on June 30 and landed in a garden in Clapham, south London. He is believed to have fallen from the landing gear compartment as the aircraft approached Heathrow Airport.

Police say the death is not being treated as suspicious and they’ll continue to liaise with the Coroner.
