The body of the stowaway fell on a home garden in south London, next to a sunbathing man.

However, JKIA management and government officials disputed the report saying that the man identified in the photo was an inmate serving a prison sentence in Kenya.

Sky News had reported that the stowaway was a cleaner under Colnet company at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. His girlfriend also affirmed that the identity was correct and the bag and clothes collected from the scene were his.
