THE helicopter which belongs to Leicester City owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha has crashed in the vicinity of the King Power Stadium.
There is no word yet regarding who was on board the helicopter.
A Leicester police statement said: “We are dealing with an incident in the vicinity of the King Power Stadium.
“Emergency services are aware and dealing.”
East Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Trust tweeted: “We are also in attendance and will update when possible.”
Sky Sports News reporter Rob Dorsett said: “At about 8:30 this evening, eyewitnesses told me they saw the Leicester City owners’ helicopter take off from the pitch inside the King Power Stadium – as it does after every game – and after a few seconds it appeared to lose control.
“It was sent spinning out of control and crashed in the car park at the rear of the King Power Stadium, just a few hundred metres away from where the pitch is.”
The incident occurred after Leicester’s 1-1 draw with West Ham in the Premier League on Saturday night.
