    Whenever Leicester fans rang in to gripe about the team, they were never aimed at the owners. We don't know all the facts but our thoughts are also with the families of the helicopter's crew as well.

    I know the whole Srivaddhanaprabha family and the father, and what he has done for Leicester is incredible. He took the club from the second division up to the first division, winning it, and made them a big Premier League club.

    He was always there with his family. I think he saw every game during my time. The whole family were there, at training, talking to the manager, talking to the players. They are fantastic.

    When I came to the club he said that he wanted to make it a big Premier League club, there were no secrets about that. He sacked me but I think he did well because I bought the wrong players, I failed. It was fair of him to do it and the result has been great for Leicester.

    When you know him as I do, and of course the whole team and all the staff, you know that he is a very, very generous man. With the players, with the staff, with the people working for him, with the fans and with the community, he is an extremely generous man.

  9. So what happened last night? - Eyewitness accounts

    Eyewitness accounts of what happened at King Power Stadium last night paint a desolate picture.

    Freelance photographer Ryan Brown, who was covering the game, saw the helicopter clear the King Power Stadium before it crashed.

    He told BBC Radio Leicester: "The engine stopped and I turned round and it made a bit of a whirring noise, like a grinding noise.

    "The helicopter just went silent, I turned round and it was just spinning, out of control. And then there was a big bang and then [a] big fireball."

  10. Support from other teams' fans at King Power

    BBC Leicester commentator Ian Stringer is down at the King Power Stadium this morning, where fans from other teams have been showing their support too.

  11. What happened last night? - 'Within two minutes there were thick flames'

    Leicester City helicopter crash

    Match of the Day floor manager Andrew James working at Leicester v West Ham:

    “I would estimate the helicopter landed not much more than 100 yards outside the boundary of the King Power Stadium and whatever is there. For the first two minutes it was grey smoke billowing up into the air but within no more than two minutes there were thick flames.

    “There was fire and two policeman ran down the road towards me. I was in the car at the time and I just pulled over to ring in. These policemen were shouting at everyone to get out of the way. I did hear one bang which sounded like a canister exploding.

    “I didn’t personally see it come down. I saw it in the air, I saw it hovering 50 feet above the stadium and thought nothing of it. But it wasn’t on fire at that point. I’ve heard some people say it was in flames in the air. I don’t think it was. It was normal in the air but after it spiralled to the ground and hit the deck that’s when the flames started."

  13. 'A shining example to other owners of clubs'

    BBC Radio 5 live

    Leicester chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha

    Former Leicester winger Matt Piper on 5 Live breakfast: "I was at the game on Saturday. I do the summarising for Radio Leicester on match days. The chairman was there.

    "It is the darkest day for our football club at the minute and we are just waiting on news now and praying that everyone who did board that helicopter is all right. We only talk about the huge things that the chairman has done for the football club but, on a day-to-day basis at games, him and his son give out free pies, beers, cakes, clappers, doughnuts, T-shirts – they are a shining example to other owners of football clubs.

    "The connection they have with the people of Leicester - not just its fans - because him and his son and the King Power empire support local charities, hospitals. It's a real dark day if you’re a Leicester fan and for the wider community."

  14. 'Many people are in tears'

    Leicester tributes

    Sam Fisher, BBC News, at the King Power Stadium: “There has been a steady flow of people wearing Leicester City shirts and hats this morning. Despite the number of fans gathered here, it’s very quiet.

    “Lots of children are also here with their parents laying flowers outside the ground.

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

  15. 'People arriving at stadium in numbers'

    Flowers at Leicester City

    People are starting to arrive in more and more numbers, by the dozens now. A small memorial has been set up outside of turnstiles 54 and 57, which is next to the club shop.

    There is a memorial which has been gated off and there is a picture of Ganesha, who is an important Hindu figure. Next to that there are lots of bunches of flowers laid and propped up against the stadium. I can see two dozen people standing by the memorial and looking, simply looking, and not knowing how to react and how to deal with what’s going on.

    There is only a small section of the ground that is open. There is a police cordon to my left and the crash site is behind that, no more than 400-500 yards away.
