The design proposals for the tomb where Richard lll will finally be laid to rest have been unveiled.

It has been confirmed his remains will be reburied in Leicester, after they were discovered underneath a car park in the City last year. No date has been set for the reinterment but it is expected to take place next spring.

The tomb design was commissioned by Philippa Langley – from the Richard lll Society who was behind the search.

The design was undertaken by a team of specialists with more than 40 years of research into Richard III. It was first proposed in drawing form in September 2010, and then preliminary images were presented in August 2011.
