A truly dreadful incident occurred outside Leicester City’s stadium on Saturday evening when a helicopter belonging to the Foxes’ powers crashed into a car park outside the ground.
The crash happened shortly after the final whistle of Leicester’s 1-1 draw against West Ham. Precise details are still scarce and it is not known if Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha was on board.
