The remains of three of Nelson Mandela's children have been exhumed from a property belonging to his grandson, Mandla Mandela, police say.

They have been taken from Mvezo in South Africa's Eastern Cape Province to a funeral parlour in nearby Mthatha, Lt Col Mzukisi Fatyela told the BBC.

It comes hours after a court ruled the remains should be removed for reburial in a nearby family graveyard.

Mandla moved the remains in 2011, allegedly without the family's consent.

His 94-year-old grandfather remains critically ill in hospital.
