King Richard III reburial costs more than £3m
The final cost of reburying Richard III's remains in Leicester has been revealed at more than £3m.
The bones of the last Plantagenet king were discovered in a car park in the city in 2012 and laid to rest in March.
The bulk was spent on remodelling Leicester cathedral, with a further £577,000 spent on security and events.
Leicester City Council said the king had generated about £60m for the local economy with £4.5m of that in two weeks of events surrounding reinterment.
A major fundraising appeal by the cathedral raised the majority of the £2.5m needed for work inside the building.
The rest of the reburial costs were met by the University of Leicester, the city and county councils and Leicestershire police.
The major costs included £83,000 on the "Leicester Glows" event which ended the celebrations, £60,850 on a ceremony at Bosworth Battlefield and £59,090 on security and crowd management.
Leicestershire police also had to pay for mounted units from the City Of London Police.
The city council commissioned a report into the benefits of the events which found 600,000 more people visited the region as a result of King Richard, spending £54.5m.
During the two weeks of celebrations, the city had a further 9,500 visitors and a £4.5m boost to the economy.
Leicester City Mayor Sir Peter Soulsby said: "The discovery of King Richard lll and his subsequent reinterment has had a greater impact on the city than we could ever have anticipated.
"If the figures are to be believed [visitors] are also spending money and thereby generating growth and new jobs in the area and that is excellent news for residents and businesses alike."
