The York Outer MP Julian Sturdy is supporting the campaign to have Richard III buried in York.
Mr Sturdy also announced that he has written to the Archbishop of York, the Ministry of Justice and the Private Secretary to Her Majesty the Queen, to request that the Yorkist King’s final resting place be considered very carefully.
“As the last Yorkist King of England and last King to die in battle, Richard III is hugely important to the heritage of our historic city of York. There is plenty of evidence to suggest that King Richard wished to be buried in York and particularly in the Minster.. .... The people of York and indeed Yorkshire are extremely grateful for the excellent work carried out by the archaeologists and the University of Leicester. We merely want the options for King Richard’s final resting place to be properly considered
Descendants of King Richard III have demanded that his remains are reburied in York.
The remains of Richard III are likely to stay in Leicester according to Ladbrokes.
More than 1,000 people have signed an official petition to have Richard of York's remains brought back to Yorkshire.
