A HELICOPTER belonging to the Thai owner of Leicester City Football Club has crashed in a ball of flames outside the club’s King Power stadium.
Witnesses told Sky Sports News that there was a loud mechanical sound before they saw the aircraft spiralling and crashing in a huge fireball in the club’s staff car park some 200 yards from the stadium.

The helicopter had only taken off from the football pitch seconds before at about 8.30pm.
It is not clear if the club’s billionaire owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha was on-board the helicopter at the time, but he had been at the game which had finished 45 minutes earlier.
Some fans were still leaving the ground after Leicester City drew 1-1 with West Ham.
