The family of Mr Nagareddy, from Karnataka, said in a statement: "Deeply loved and mourned by father Nagareddy.D, mother Shakunthalamma and wife Hemamalini and family."

The other two passengers, a 43-year-old man and a 58-year-old man, both from Bangalore, have been released from hospital after treatment.

The driver of the taxi sustained minor injuries.

The men were on their way to Heathrow Airport after a business trip.
