Once the investigation is complete a file will be produced for the coroner and an inquest can take place.

Detective Sergeant Paul Graves, of the south central command unit, said: “We have pursued a number of lines of inquiry in what has been a very sad incident to investigate.

“This man has a family somewhere who need to know what has happened to their loved one.

“Our investigation has included liaison with the authorities in Kenya, from where the flight took off, but so far our efforts to identify this man have proved fruitless.

” I hope by releasing this e-fit someone known to the deceased will recognize him and make contact. “
