Football fans who received free gifts in tribute to Leicester City's owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha have put them up for sale on ebay.

Bags containing scarves which read "Mr Chairman", badges, programmes and clappers were left on more than 30,000 seats at Saturday's match against Burnley.

It was the first home match since the helicopter crash which killed him and four other people.

Now those items are appearing on online auction site ebay.

This item above is currently for sale for £1,106 with no mention of proceeds going to charity.

Whereas this collection going for £7,100 does say that all proceeds will go to Leicester Hospital's charity.

Other items simply say the money will go to "good charitable use"
