Leicester City’s owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha’s helicopter crashed in the club’s car park shortly after their clash against West Ham United.
The incident occurred shortly after the Foxes’ 1-1 draw with West Ham in the Premier League on Saturday.
Srivaddhanaprabha’s helicopter reportedly left the ground as usual from the centre of the pitch at about 20:30 local time but it is thought it swiftly came down in the car park.
Emergency services are currently at the King Power Stadium where an aircraft came down in a car park behind the ground. Enquiries to establish the exact circumstances of the collision are ongoing https://t.co/swEdWeByGH
