Mayor confident for 'sensible decision' on Richard III

Mayor of Leicester Sir Peter Soulsby has welcomed the judicial review into the final resting place of King Richard III.

He says he's confident the outcome will be a 'sensible one', as the monarch's skeleton has been buried in the city for more than 500 years after his death at the Battle of Bosworth in Leicestershire.
