What the papers say – October 28

A helicopter crash outside Leicester’s King Power Stadium and an interview with Sir Philip Green make the front pages on Sunday.

The Sunday Mirror runs with the headline “Fireball”, and reports that the helicopter often used by Leicester owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha crashed in flames shortly after setting off from the pitch on Saturday evening.

The Sunday Times also features the story on its front page, but leads on the deaths of 11 people at a synagogue in Pittsburgh in the United States.

Topshop boss Sir Philip features on the front of the Mail on Sunday, which reports that he has rejected allegations of racial abuse and sexual harassment of staff, insisting he never meant to cause offence.

In an interview with the paper, he described the past days as a “horror story” and said the furore was “injuring” his business.

And the Sunday People reports that children are buying knives on Facebook and getting them delivered to school.
