Richard III burial appeal for County Durham

The castle in Barnard Castle Ms Goodman said Richard III lived "very happily for many years" at the castle

An appeal for the remains of Richard III to be buried in County Durham has been made in Parliament.

Labour MP for Bishop Auckland Helen Goodman said Barnard Castle could be considered because the king lived for many years at the castle.

The monarch's remains were found under a car park in Leicester, following an archaeological dig last month.

The most likely location for the burial is Leicester cathedral but York has also been suggested.
