Leicester helicopter crash

Leicester City chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha

Leicester City owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha has been confirmed as one of five victims in a helicopter crash near the club's stadium on Saturday evening.

The Thai business was leaving the King Power Stadium via helicopter as usual after his side's Premier League clash with West Ham United.

However, the vehicle soon span out of control after clearing the top of the stadium, crashing back to ground with eye-witnesses claiming they saw a fireball as emergency services rushed to the scene.

The club have now confirmed that all five people on board the helicopter have died.
