The helicopter of Leicester owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha has crashed outside the King Power Stadium following the Premier League game against West Ham.

The incident occurred in the club’s car park, where police cars and emergency services rushed towards an area where flames were clearly visible before it was evacuated.

Leicestershire Police tweeted: “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 added on its Twitter feed: “We are also in attendance and will update when possible.”

Srivaddhanaprabha leaves the stadium by his helicopter, which lands in the centre circle on the pitch, after every Leicester home game.
