Is Richard the Third buried in a car park?

It's not the most fitting resting place for a King, but archaeologists looking for the lost grave of Richard the Third are about to start digging up a 1960s car park.

He was killed at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485 and buried in a church in Leicester, which has long since disappeared.

Archaeologists are using sonar equipment to help with the hunt.

Jeremy Cooke reports.
