Former King's distant relative to lead march through York

A distant relative of King Richard III will lead a march through York this afternoon to campaign for his remains to be buried in the city after they were found beneath a car park in Leicester. Vanessa Roe is his 16th Great Niece and is also leading a legal battle over the former King's remains.

Today's march will depart from the Castle Museum at 12noon and arrive at Museum Gardens at 2pm. Some of those taking part will be in medieval costumes and they will be handing out leaflets to raise awareness of their campaign.
