King Richard III: Preparations under way for reburial in Leicester

When the skeleton of King Richard III was found buried under a car park in Leicester, it was described as one of the archaeological finds of the century.

The king's body had been in a shallow grave for more than 500 years, after he was killed at the Battle of Bosworth Field.

His remains are to be moved to the city's cathedral, where he will be given a burial service fit for a medieval king on 26 March 2015.

Sian Lloyd's been following the preparations.
