Details of DNA results from a skull thought to be that of Richard III are to be announced in a news conference.

Last year a University of Leicester team dug on the site of a church where it was believed the king was buried.

They found a skeleton with a badly curved spine and head injuries consistent with recorded details of Richard's death in 1485.
