BODY FIND ON BA JET.

A BODY has been found in the wheel well of a British Airways 747 jumbo jet.

The stowaway, in his 30s, was found on Tuesday evening after flight BA177 from London Heathrow landed at Kennedy airport, New York.

The man was thought to be from Nigeria. He was carrying Nigerian currency and the plane flew from Lagos to London a week ago. He would have frozen to death once the jet gained altitude.

BA spokeswoman said yesterday: "We are investigating just how the person got on board."
