Search for the lost King of East Anglia

The discovery of the body of King Richard III under a car park in Leicester has prompted speculation about the whereabouts of another long dead King rather closer to home.

The bones of St Edmund - who was King of East Anglia - may or may not be buried in the Suffolk town that bears his name but some keen historians would like to find out for sure.

Sarah Friswell of St Edmundsbury cathedral said: "The name of the town gives it away - Bury St Edmunds. So when people come here the first question they ask is where is St Edmund? It would be nice to answer their questions."
