A firm in Cumbria is making the tomb where the remains of King Richard III will be re-buried.

The king's bones were found under a car park in Leicester three years ago.

Penrith based Cumbrian Stone is carving the limestone for his new resting place at Leicester cathedral this March.

King Richard was killed on the battle field at Bosworth in 1485.
