Leicester City crash victims 'had minimal opportunity to escape'

Srivaddhanaprabha was killed along with Nusara Suknamai, Kaveporn Punpare, Izabela Roza Lechowicz and pilot Eric Swaffer when the helicopter they were travelling in appeared to lose control shortly after taking off from the stadium following the 1-1 draw with West Ham on October 27.

Five people, including Leicester City owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, died in a helicopter crash on October 27.

A police officer who gave evidence at the inquest said there was minimal opportunity for anybody else to have got in or out of the aircraft in the moments before the crash.

Vardy and wife Rebekah are auctioning off their executive box at the King Power Stadium to raise more money for the foundation, as well as a pair of the striker's boots.

Giving evidence at the inquest, DCI David Sandall of Leicestershire police said: "On Saturday 27 October there was a helicopter crash in the auto park of the King Power stadium".

The inquest opened two days after Mr Srivaddhanaprabha's funeral took place in Thailand.

Thousands of tributes have been left outside the stadium after the news of the Leicester owner's death.

'CCTV shows the five victims in the tunnel at Leicester City football ground'.

"Mobile phone footage showed the helicopter spinning out of control before descending to the crash site".

Mr Sandall added: 'The investigation is ongoing into the cause of the crash'.

Leicester Senior Coroner Catherine Mason adjourned the inquest for a later date.

She said: 'The provisional cause of death is pending subject to further tests.

'Therefore I am not in a position to continue with the inquest at this time'.
