Stark warn­ing that no-deal Brexit could tip UK into re­ces­sion worse than crash.

The Courier & Advertiser (Dundee Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

The Duke and Duchess of Cam­bridge have paid tribute to the five peo­ple killed in a he­li­copter crash at Leicester City’s ground, leav­ing a flo­ral me­mento in their mem­ory.

Wil­liam and Kate knew the club’s owner, Vichai Sri­vad­dhanaprabha, who died with four oth­ers when the air­craft came down in Oc­to­ber.

The cou­ple were met yes­ter­day by mem­bers of the owner’s fam­ily – his son Aiyawatt, wife Ai­mon and daugh­ter Aroon­roong – who wel­comed them to a tribute site cov­ered in a sea of flow­ers.

Wil­liam clasped Aiyawatt’s hand with both of his and spoke in­tently to him be­fore in­tro­duc­ing Kate.

The bou­quets, many with mes­sages of sup­port, had been left out­side the club’s King Power Sta­dium.

They were later moved to a nearby open space that fea­tured a large por­trait of the owner with the words “The Boss” be­low it.

Foot­ball scarves from the club and other teams across the coun­try had been hung along crash bar­ri­ers pay­ing tribute to the five de­ceased.

Se­nior fig­ures from Leicester City were also at the event, in­clud­ing star striker and Eng­land for­ward Jamie Vardy, club cap­tain Wes Mor­gan and man­ager Claude Puel.

Kate left a bou­quet at the site as Wil­liam, pres­i­dent of the Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion and a keen fan of the game, stood be­side her.

A con­do­lence card with the flow­ers, signed by the cou­ple, read: “To Vichai and all those who died in this ter­ri­ble tragedy, you will be dearly missed. Our sin­cere con­do­lences to the city of Leicester.”

The other four vic­tims were Leicester City em­ploy­ees Nur­sara Suk­na­mai and Kave­porn Pun­pare, the pi­lot Eric Swaf­fer and his part­ner Iz­abela Roza Le­chow­icz, who was also a pro­fes­sional he­li­copter pi­lot.
