The man, whose body fell to the ground in Portman Avenue, Mortlake, just before 7.55am on Sunday, September 9, was pronounced dead at the scene. He has never been identified but is believed to be an African man aged between 20 and 30 years old.

Police believe the man could be from Angola as he was found with Angolan currency in his possession and enquiries have established that a flight from Luanda, Angola was overhead prior to the body being found.

He was wearing jeans, a grey hoody and white trainers and 5ft 4ins tall and of slight build.

Police have released an efit of the man’s face and a picture of a tattoo on his left arm in a bid to find out who he is.

The tattoo is a very distinctive emblem with the letters ‘ Z ‘ and ‘G ‘ clearly visible.

The man was not a member of the air crew or a passenger on the plane.

A post-mortem at Kingston Hospital Mortuary on September 11 gave the cause of death as multiple injuries and an inquest has been opened and adjourned at West London Coroner’s Court.

Anyone with information call 020 8247 7202 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
