    The European Aviation Safety Agency has issued an Emergency Airworthiness Directive (AD) for the AW169 helicopter - the model involved in the crash at the King Power Stadium, that killed five people.

    The directive, which doesn't directly mention the Leicester crash but does mention an accident being investigated, calls for an urgent check of the mechanism that controls the aircraft's tail rotor and "corrective action(s)" if required.

    It said: "This AD is considered to be an interim action and further AD action may follow."
