Commissioner pays tribute to victims of helicopter crash

Wreath at KP Stadium

Lord Willy Bach, watched by members of his Office, lays wreath at King Power Stadium

Police and Crime Commissioner, Lord Willy Bach, Deputy Commissioner Kirk Master and members of his Office visited King Power Stadium earlier today (Fri 2 Nov) to pay their respects to the five victims of Saturday’s helicopter crash.

Laying a wreath of white and blue flowers, Foxes supporter Willy Bach said that the outpouring of grief seen at King Power Stadium was something to behold.

“I hope that these wonderful tributes give the families and friends of the victims some solace,” he said.  “The sheer scale of tributes, floral, clothing and memorabilia, is just breath-taking and although they have been given in the most dreadful of circumstances, I really hope that they help all those affected by this tragedy.

“I know that the Club; the City and the wider community remain united in grief and shock.  They have our deepest sympathy.  It is to be hoped that the global support and sorrow so vividly illustrated, will give them additional fortitude and strength in the coming weeks.

“This has been a challenging week for everyone involved and once again I would like to place on record my admiration for all those emergency and support workers who have been involved in the aftermath of this dreadful accident. They have given their all.  In the worst of circumstances, their actions are totally inspiring.”
