A ninth body has been found just over half a mile from a shopping centre where gunmen opened fire, killing at least eight people, a police spokesman has confirmed.

Staff still hiding inside Munich shopping centre

Employees are still hiding inside the mall

Workers have said they are still hiding inside a Munich shopping centre after a shooting in the building.

One employee reported that "many shots were fired" during the incident and he saw one person lying on the ground with serious injuries.

Many shots were fired, I can't say how many but it's been a lot.

All the people from outside came streaming into the store and I only saw one person on the ground who was so severely injured that he definitely didn't survive. We have no further information, we're just staying in the back in the storage rooms. No police have approached us yet.

Leicester's pre-season fixture list will provide a real test for the Foxes before they embark on their defence of the title. It'll also give an idea on how well they might fare in the Champions League.

Their first game comes on 19th July against Oxford United. After that it becomes a little bit more tricky:-

  • 23rd July - A trip North of the border to play Scottish champions Celtic
  • 30th July - A long distance flight to Los Angeles to play Paris Saint Germain.
  • 3rd August - Back across the pond to take on Spanish champions Barcelona in Stockholm
  • 25th August - the draw for the group stage of the Champions League will be made in Monaco.
