Report: King Richard III reburied at Leicester Cathedral

There has been huge interest in King Richard III ever since his remains were found under a car park in Leicester more than two years ago.

For centuries Richard has been a controversial king. Even now the official website of the British monarchy says he wrongly took the crown from his young nephew who then vanished.

Today members of the Royal Family and a Hollywood A-lister attended a reinterment service for the last English king to die in battle. Callum Watkinson reports on the re-burial of a medieval monarch.

Norwich City have missed out on the loan signing of Arsenal striker Chuba Akpom, with the forward joining Nottingham Forest instead.

The Canaries had been heavily linked with a move for the England under 20s star, and were said to have held talks with him last weekend.

However, Akpom has now moved to the City Ground until May 31.

The news comes as a blow for Norwich who are looking for extra firepower to cover for the loss of injured forward Lewis Grabban ahead of tonight's 5pm loan deadline.
