British police have released an e-fit image of a man who was found dead in the undercarriage of a TUI plane at Gatwick Airport.

UK authorities are still working to identify the man, who was discovered after the aircraft landed at Gatwick from Banjul in December of last year

The man is believed to be in his 20s or 30s, and investigators are working with the Gambian High Commissioner and HM Coroner to trace his identity.

The investigation is more difficult as the man was found without any documentation which could help to find out who he was.

Detective Inspector Darren Lillywhite of Sussex Police said: “This was a tragic case, and we are working to establish the identity of the man found deceased. Somewhere, this man will have relatives or loved ones who do not know what has happened to him.” 

He added: “In particular, we are seeking contact from anyone in the UK that may have been expecting to meet a friend or family member who failed to arrive in December, as well as anyone in The Gambia or neighbouring countries who may have knowledge about an individual who made travel plans to come to the UK or Europe.”

Anyone with information which could lead to the identification of the man has been urged to contact Sussex Police.
