Police in London are investigating after a man is believed to have dropped to his death from a Kenya Airways plane flying over the English capital.

On Monday (local time), the London Metropolitan police released a statement saying they were attempting to establish "the identity of a man believed to have fallen from the landing gear compartment of an aeroplane".

His body was found discovered in a garden in the London suburb of Clapham and a post-mortem is being carried out.

Police believe the man was a stowaway on a Kenya Airways plane flying into Heathrow Airport. A bag, water and food was found in the landing gear compartment. 

"Enquiries continue, led by the South Central Command Unit and the Met's Aviation Policing Command. Officers will be liaising with the airline and international authorities," the statement said.
