Richard III's descendants: "reburial is a breach of human rights"

Fifteen of Richard III's descendents are seeking a judicial review over the planned reburial of the King's remains in Leicester Cathedral - saying it is a breach of their Human Rights.

A team from the University of Leicester unearthed the Yorkist King's remains under a council carpark but a group of distant relatives say they weren't consulted and it breaches their right to family life.

The university disputes the claims and says there was 'no obligation' to consult them.
