Stone used to build York Minister is going under the hammer today.
A woman who kept 140 snakes in her home and had another 20 dead ones - and a dead cat in her freezer - has pleaded guilty to a string of animal cruelty and welfare charges.
RSPCA inspectors say their investigation into Pauline Wallace's bizarre collection uncovered one of the most shocking cases they have ever found.
The RSPCA is appealing for information after three Greylag geese were hit by a vehicle on Navigation Road in York on Monday.
An RSPCA animal collection officer arrived to find that two of the birds had been killed.
The third goose was taken to the vets but it had to be put to sleep after suffering terrible injuries to its wing and chest.
It is not known if the geese were run over on purpose or if the person was going too fast.
As well as the snakes, they found a dead cat in a fridge-freezer.
Wallace told the RSPCA she had "around 140 snakes" including boas, pythons and corn snakes.
At York Magistrates Court she pleaded guilty to two cruelty charges after she caused unnecessary suffering to her border collie Alf by failing to provide him with adequate veterinary care when he fell ill.
She also admitted seven offences of failing to ensure the welfare of snakes and reptiles. A further 10 animal cruelty charges initially brought by the RSPCA were dropped and dismissed by magistrates.
The legal battle over where the remains of Richard III will be buried has been adjourned.
Three High Court judges decided to adjourn the case to a later date because another party had joined the legal confrontation.
The remains of the last Plantagenet King were found buried under a car park in Leicester last year, and the plan was for them to be reinterred in a tomb in Leicester Cathedral.
But distant relatives of the King in York have brought a legal challenge to this decision. The Plantagenet Alliance claim the remains should be reburied at York Minister, as he wished.
The legal challenge consists of concerns that the Justice Secretary failed to consult before giving archaeologists at the University of Leicester license to excavate Richard’s body, and decide where he would be reburied.
Now the case has been adjourned so that Leicester City Council can be added to the list of parties being challenged by the York group.
A woman who kept 140 snakes in her home and had another 20 dead in a freezer has pleaded guilty to a string of animal cruelty and welfare charges.
Pauline Wallace, 64, from Osbaldwick Lane, York, stored her collection of reptiles in old sweet tubs, plastic bins and vivariums stacked floor to ceiling in her semi-detached house.
RSPCA inspectors discovered the colony when they went to check up after a tip-off.
The battle to decide where the remains of Richard III are to be buried goes to the High Court today.
The full judicial review hearing about whether the exhuming and reinterring of Richard III's remains should be allowed takes place at London's High Court.
Involving two judges and expected to last a whole day, the hearing will specifically examine the Ministry of Justice's decision to grant a "section 25 licence" to the University of Leicester.
This authorised the university to remove the king's remains from beneath a council car park and reinter them. The university subsequently announced it intended the reburial would take place in Leicester Cathedral.
A group of the king's descendants, known as Plantagenet Alliance Limited, which wants his final resting place to be York, has brought Tuesday's case in an effort to have the "section 25 licence" quashed.
Descendants of Richard III who want his remains to be re-buried in York, are taking their case to the High Court. Solicitor Matthew Howarth explains why.
