Leicester Cathedral will outline its plans for the burial of Yorkist King Richard the Third.

Legal action's due to begin on Monday - into the process which decided the king should stay in Leicester and not York.

It's believed Richard wanted to be laid to rest here and a petition calling for that has almost thirty-thousand signatures.

His descendant Vanessa Roe told Minster FM last month where she thinks he should be laid to rest.
