York fights Leicester for the right to bury Richard III

Help

A row has erupted between York and Leicester about which city has the right to bury Richard III's remains.

There are calls for a Leicester Cathedral interment, close to where he was found.

However King Richard grew up in North Yorkshire, and York City Council is writing to the Queen asking for permission to bury him at York Minster.
