Should Richard III's remains be interred in Gloucester Cathedral?
IT seems King Richard III's remains have been lying under a Leicester car park for more than 500 years.
And now there is a bitter row over where the former Duke of Gloucester's final resting place should be.
While some believe it should remain in Leicester, an Abbeydale couple want the famous British monarch to be interred at Gloucester Cathedral.
It comes as MPs are fighting for the former King, whose reign was famously ended by Henry VII at the Battle of Bosworth, to be interred in their city.

Retired couple Ted and Anne Hancock, of Saintbridge Road, say the king's rightful resting place is Gloucester, where he would join King Edward II at the Cathedral.
Richard III was arguably the most famous Duke of Gloucester, after he became king in 1483 until 1485 in the decisive battle of the Wars of the Roses.
Mr Hancock said: "Just saying that he was found in Leicester 'so let's leave him there' is not the point.
"There's already a lot of interest in Gloucester Cathedral and we think he should be brought here.
"I don't think there's been many people shouting up for Gloucester but perhaps a campaign should be started."
The Ministry of Justice has said it is likely the king will be given a burial inside Leicester Cathedral.
