 "This is definitely very unusual that someone was able to survive the cold at such a height - very, very unusual," Joanna Helmonds of the Royal Dutch Military said yesterday.

In June 2019, a stowaway on a Kenya Airways flight from Nairobi to Heathrow Airport, London, was found dead in a Clapham garden.

An investigation first identified the stowaway as Paul Manyasi, a 29-year-old cleaner at JKIA. But this was later disputed.
