The garden, opened on the crash’s first anniversary, is named after the club’s chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, who was among those who died.

It was grown using compost made from the floral tributes left at the site.

Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy said the garden would show people “the type of person” Mr Vichai was.

On 27 October 2018 the chairman’s helicopter crashed¬†shortly after taking off, killing all those on board.
