Richard III: Leicester Cathedral reveals burial plans

Leicester Cathedral has unveiled its plans for a tomb to hold the remains of King Richard III.

Plans for a raised limestone tomb with a carved cross, in a floor inlaid with a large Yorkist white rose, will be submitted to planning officials.

It will mean the redevelopment of Leicester Cathedral where the tomb will lie.

However there is still an ongoing dispute over where Richard III's remains will be buried.

A group known as the Plantagenet Alliance argue they should be buried in York and have won the right for a judicial review over the decision to allow the burial to take place in Leicester.
