'Listen to relatives of Richard III'
CITY councillor Sebastian Field believes the voice of Richard III's relatives should be heard.
Mr Field led the campaign to bring the bones of the English King back to Gloucester.
But now that the case has gone to the High Court in a clear battle between Leicester and York he is supporting the case being put by Richard III's relatives for the bones to be laid in York.
He is also celebrating the fact that Gloucester has been added as one of the key cities in a national tour of the reconstructed head.

Gloucester will, in March next year, play host to the head of Richard III, built around the shape of the skull found at the Greyfriars site in Leicester.
Mr Field said: "The festival will be a great opportunity for Gloucester and I am delighted to be driving it forward despite the disappointment that Richard's bones won't be buried in the city.
"I now believe it is time that the debate reaches its conclusion and it is only right that the relatives' case is heard."
