The Director of Kenya Civil Aviation Gilbert Kibe has said they suspect the stowaway who fell from a Kenya Airways plane in London was an airport employee.

Kibe told BBC that they are checking the names of airport employees to see if anyone is missing.

The man fell from the undercarriage of the plane and landed in a garden of a South London home.

The body of the unknown stowaway fell 1km into the back garden of a home.

“It looks highly likely he was an employee because security has been beefed up and no one without a pass could get near a plane,” an airport security official told The Sun.

“He could have been a baggage handler or one of a number of staff given airside clearance,” he said.
