After the horror of Sunday evening, there were mournful, emotional and yet reassuring scenes outside Leicester City’s stadium on Monday as hundreds of fans flocked to pay their sympathies.
Five people, including Foxes owner Vicham Srivaddhanaprabha, were all killed when a helicopter transporting them away from the King Power Stadium crashed outside the ground following the team’s 1-1 draw against West Ham.
The praises of pilot Ed Swaffer have already been sung today, who managed to prevent further devastation by guiding the malfunctioning, falling chopper away from crowds and into an empty car park.
With confirmation of the victims announced earlier, droves of Leicester fans made their way to the stadium to offer condolences, with the team also doing likewise in front of a sea of blue shirts, scarves, programmes, candles and lots of heartfelt messages of condolence and/or thanks.
Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha, son of Vichai, was also in attendance at the impromptu ceremony.
