Chelsea insisted on Wednesday morning they were not aware of any club officials being involved in an apparent helicopter crash.

A private helicopter carrying four or five people vanished earlier on Wednesday, police said. The helicopter, which left John Lennon Airport in Liverpool on Tuesday night, following the Champions League semi-final second leg at Anfield, was heading to a private landing site near Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, when it vanished.

Cambridgeshire Police were unable to give details of the people on board and could not say whether there was any link to the match, while the Blues´ director of public affairs Simon Greenberg told PA Sport he was adamant that no club directors were involved, having spoken to a number of directors who attended the game.
