Druid priest King Arthur Pendragon loses court battle

A druid priest has lost his bid to try to secure the re-burial of ancient human remains at Stonehenge.

King Arthur Pendragon argued that the cremated bone fragments, of a group called "the Guardians", should not be kept above ground.

Archaeologists say the fragments provide a vital chance to learn more about the monument.

Speaking before the hearing, King Arthur Pendragon, said the issue was not about being a druid and he had the backing of many other religions.
