York launches battle with Leicester over Richard III's remains
Council bosses in York are campaigning to have Richard III's remains placed in their city after it was confirmed a skeleton buried under a Leicester car park belongs to the king.
The council is said to be writing to the Queen to state its case, and an e-petition to the Government calling for his remains to be buried in York Minster has more than 1,800 signatures.
However, the exhumation licence issued by the Ministry of Justice states the remains should be buried in Leicester, and preparations for the body to be re-interred at Leicester Cathedral have already begun.
An e-petition has also been set up in favour of the remains being re-interred in Leicester and has been signed by 600 people.
