Leicester were playing West Ham in the Premier League's Saturday night fixture.

The helicopter crashed by a nearby auto park after spiralling out of control as it departed from inside the stadium approximately an hour-and-a-half after Leicester's 1-1 draw with West Ham.

Freelance photographer Ryan Brown was covering the game and saw the helicopter clear the King Power stadium before it crashed.

Sky Sports broadcast pictures of what it said was the helicopter in flames, reporting it belonged to Leicester City Football Club's Thai owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha.

But there were no immediate details about who was on board.
