Richard lll state funeral after car park skeleton found?
Professor Lin Foxhall, head of Leicester University's School of Archaeology, explained the ongoing tests on a body found beneath a car park and the chances of it being the remains of Richard lll, killed in the Battle of Bosworth in 1485.
A Conservative MP has called for a state funeral, if DNA tests confirm the identity, saying it follows the tradition for other monarchs.
Chris Skidmore, who is having to re-write his book on the Battle of Bosworth, said there would have to be a debate about who paid for the funeral, and whether it would be an Anglican or Catholic service.
