Royal skeleton hopes hit
HOPES are fading that the remains of Richard III will be interred in the county.
Yesterday it was confirmed the skeleton found underneath a car park in Leicester is that of the monarch.
The king was a former Duke of Gloucester and some people have argued that his remains should be interred at Gloucester Cathedral, alongside Edward II.
However, after the University of Leicester said DNA identified in the bones matched his descendants, the remains are set to be interred at that city's cathedral.

Although he was killed in the Battle of Bosworth in 1485 and buried in Leicester, he had strong links with Gloucestershire.
He gave the city the Royal Charter and his coat of arms is on St Michael's Tower.
Gloucester MP Richard Graham had spoken in favour of bringing the remains back to the area.
And the call had been backed by others in the county, including Gloucester Cathedral lay clerk and city councillor Sebastian Field.
