A prayer book owned by King Richard III has gone on display at the New Walk Museum in London.

It was with him at the Battle of Bosworth and was placed on his coffin during the reinterment ceremony at the city's cathedral last week.

The book is made from parchment and dates back to 1420, with handwritten prayers added especially for King Richard III. It's also thought that the King wrote the date of his birthday in the book.

Robert Mann is fighting for his life after falling onto the tracks at Old Street station on Sunday - after dropping what's believed to have been his mobile phone.

His brother Nick, a Shrewsbury Town fan who had been to see them play that day, jumped onto the line to try to help him. He was also hit by the train and later died.

Kamran Haq got to know Nick through their mutual love of music.
