A petition calling for King Richard III to be buried in York has closed.

It's attracted 31,209 signatures, including one from York actress Dame Judi Dench.

But its fallen far short of the 100,000 signatures needed for a parliamentary debate. A similar petition for Leicester which closes next month has 25,368 signatures.
