The mood at the King Power stadium, home of Leicester City football club has been very sad since Saturday night.

Stunned fans have gathered at the club's ground after its owner's helicopter crashed and exploded outside the stadium.

Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha was in the helicopter when it came down at about 8.30PM.

Reuters had reported that four other people were on board with Mr Srivaddhanaprabha.

A Wilfred Ndidi late goal had helped Leicester draw 1-1 against West Ham United at the King Power Stadium, with the match finishing about one hour before the helicopter took off from the pitch.

A BBC reporter at the scene reports that there has been a steady flow of people wearing Leicester City shirts and hats on Sunday morning.

Its been very quiet despite the number of fans gathered and lots of children with their parents were seen laying flowers outside the ground.

Many people have been in tears as they approach stadium and they've all been consoling each other.

The club said it was assisting police and emergency services and would issue a more detailed statement in due course.
