Mr. Srivaddhanaprabha, 60, was reportedly heading for Luton Airport where he was due to catch a flight to Thailand before his helicopter crashed.

Witnesses say they heard the 'engine stop' in mid-air just after take-off before the aircraft plummeted to the ground in the club's car park at around 8.30pm.  

Tearful Leicester City fans have been visiting the King Power Stadium to pay their respect to the owner of the club.
