Descendant of Richard III joins protest march

A descendant of Richard III is joining a march through York today to protest at the king's body being laid to rest in Leicester.

Vanessa Roe is his 16th great niece.

The remains were found in the city centre in August last year, but protesters say the famous Yorkist monarch wanted to be buried in his home city.
