Richard III: Crowds queue for hours to see king's coffin

Thousands of people have been queuing for up to four hours to catch a glimpse of Richard III's coffin.

The king's remains are being held at Leicester Cathedral before being given a reburial service, led by the Archbishop of Canterbury, on 26 March 2015.

Archaeologists discovered Richard's skeleton in the remains of an old monastery beneath a Leicester City Council car park, two years ago.
