Leicester helicopter crash - Latest police statement as Air Accident Investigation Branch join inquiry

07:20, 28 OCT 2018

 

Leicestershire Police has released a further statement overnight following the helicopter crash outside the King Power Stadium yesterday.

Shocked fans watched on as the helicopter, owned by Leicester City chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, came down in a car park seconds after taking off last night.

 

A cordon was set up outside the ground as the emergency services raced to help the occupants.

Police released an initial statement last night, confirming they were dealing with an incident at the stadium.

 

At 2.30am this morning they released a further statement which said: "The Air Accident Investigation Branch will now be leading an investigation into the circumstances of a helicopter crash at the King Power Stadium.

 

"The aircraft came down in a car park near the stadium shortly after 8.30pm yesterday evening (Saturday 27 October) with Leicestershire Police, East Midlands Ambulance Service and Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service all responding to the incident.

 

"A cordon is currently in place at the scene to enable the AAIB to examine the area and complete their initial enquiries.

 

"Leicestershire Police will be supporting the AAIB in its investigation, liaising closely with Leicester City Football Club as enquiries continue."

Sad news  :(

If there was need for medical casualty treatment, help would not have been nearer - Leicester Royal Infirmary is but just a couple of minutes up Aylestone Road

Unfortunately not come across any mention of any injured having been sent there

The BBC reported the ambulance left the scene with no sirens and no flashing lights. Ominous signs.
