Aircraft Immigrant Found Frozen to Death
- Police find undercarriage-stowaway's body at Heathrow

THE DESPERATE measures some people will go to to migrate to Britain were highlighted today when it was revealed the body of a stowaway had been found in the undercarriage of an areoplane at Heathrow airport.

"We believe he is a stowaway. We are working to establish his identity," a police spokesperson said of the man found frozen to death at 6.20am yesterday.

Police do not yet know where the man boarded the flight as it stopped at both Cairo and Ostend on its way from Entebbe, Uganda.

Aircraft stowaways and other immigrants using highly dangerous methods of entry have been found in increasing numbers in recent years as the UK has introduced a tougher anti-immigration regime.
