    Just saw footage of it, looks horrific. Would be amazed if there was survivors. Here's hoping though.

    Spoken to King Power, who will release a statement tomorrow. #LCFC owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha was on-board the eight-seater helicopter to London. Failure, upon take off, resulted in a fire prior to a crash in the car park. No news on casualties. Prayers with #LCFC family

    There's a video of the panel including John Hartson sitting in the studio watching it ready to take off form the halfway line inside on the pitch, with the presenter saying "this is where you look at your life choices" or something to that effect.

    Helicopter is supposed to have exploded whilst in the air.

    * that indeed!

    Ooft..

    Amazing no one was done on the ground by it or flying debris around the ground no long after the game..

    Mental. Buy an English club and get done by your own helicopter coming out your own stadium. When the *'s aren't with you they definitely aren't..

    Why would he be onboard though? Hopefully just rumours, but sadly I think it'll be bad news in the morning when they release their statment.

    There’s a photo of him walking towards the helicopter apparantly, who knows though.

    Sadly I agree, at least 8 onboard, chances of anyone surviving that are near zero I’d have thought.

    Just reading bbc news, they are now saying the owner was onboard along with his family, earlier they were reporting he wasn't on board, so it's gonna be bad news sadly..

    Puts football into perspective, without him and his vision of putting in a great business and footballing plan they wouldn’t have pulled off one of the biggest upsets ever. Doesn’t look good but hopefully casualties are at a minimum.
