British millionaire, 3 others killed in helicopter crash

An honorary vice president of Chelsea Football Club and three others were killed in a helicopter crash after a Champions League soccer game against Liverpool, officials said Wednesday.
The private helicopter had disappeared during an overnight flight from Liverpool, western England. Police found the wreckage and bodies Wednesday at Wansford, near the eastern English city of Peterborough. It was not immediately clear what caused the crash.
Businessman Phillip Carter, one of eight Chelsea vice presidents, was killed in the crash, along with his teenage son Andrew, friend Jonathan Waller and pilot Stephen Holdich, said Faye Adkin, of the businessman's Nottingham-based vocational training company Carter and Carter Group PLC.
They had been returning from the soccer match, which Liverpool won 1-0, advancing to the league finals on penalties.
Cambridgeshire police Detective Superintendent John Raine said the bodies were found near the wreckage.
