Richard III: Should his bones go on display in Leicester Cathedral?
Calls for Richard III's skeleton to be put on open display before he is reburied in Leicester Cathedral have been dismissed.
Church authorities say they are determined not to turn the remains of the monarch into a "side show".
Cathedral officials said that if it is decided to invite people to pay their respects, then the king's remains are more likely to be kept in a closed casket.
The comments were made after suggestions that the skeleton might go on public display were debated on a BBC Radio Leicester phone in today with several callers saying that it should.
