Richard III: Designs for tomb to be unveiled
The designs for a tomb which may hold the remains of Richard III are due to be unveiled tomorrow.
Images of the casket, created by the Richard III Society, will feature online at This Is Leicestershire just after midnight tonight and in tomorrow's Leicester Mercury.
Following the confirmation that the skeleton found at the Grey Friars dig site, in New Street, Leicester, last August, was that of the last Plantagenet, the society has been in talks with Leicester Cathedral over the interment.
No date has been set for the reburial of the medieval monarch.

However, it is expected to take place next spring.
Philippa Langley, from the Richard III Society, said she had commissioned the building of the proposed tomb in September 2010, at the beginning of her search for Richard III.
She worked with academic from the University of Leicester, who uncovered his remains at a city council car park and used DNA evidence to confirm his identity at a press conference on February 4.
