Helicopter crash: Leicester City owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha confirmed dead

Former Leicester owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha has been confirmed as one of the five people to have lost their lives in the helicopter crash at the King Power Stadium on Saturday night.

Srivaddhanaprabha was collected from the match as usual but his helicopter sustained a problem just moments after taking off from the centre circle.

It plunged from a height of around 200 feet and crashed into the concrete, immediately becoming engulfed in flames.

Other people on board were Pilot Eric Swaffer, his partner Izabela Roza Lechowicz, who is also a pilot, and two members of Srivaddhanaprabha’s staff, Nursara Suknamai and Kaveporn Punpare.

There was no survival.
