The leader of Leicestershire County Council is pleased that the Leicester online petition to keep King Richard III in the city has overtaken the petition of York.
This is brilliant news that the Leicester e-petition has now overtaken the York figure and there are still six days left to support the petition.
It is always been my belief that Richard died at Bosworth and was then brought to Leicester to be buried so this is where he should stay. The tremendous response to the petition suggests that a lot of people feel the same way.
