Yorkshire link for king's tomb
THE long running debate over the final resting place of Richard III has taken another twist with a decision by religious chiefs to bury the former king under a raised Yorkshire limestone tomb at Leicester Cathedral.
Leicester Cathedral has said it wanted the tomb to have links that would reflect the last of England's Yorkist kings and the stone will be quarried close to where the king grew up. A petition to have the bones of the king buried in Gloucester because of his historical links to the city failed earlier this year. But a remodelled head of Richard III will visit Gloucester in March 2014 as part of a national tour of cities with historical connections.
Set within Leicester Cathedral's chancel, the £1.3million project will see the tomb placed on a floor inlaid with a large Yorkist white rose.
