The University of Leicester says its work is 'undisputed' after the High Court ruled the University does have the rights to bury King Richard III's remain in the city's cathedral.
This is a victory for common sense and justice and it upholds the norms and agreed practice for archaeological excavations.
King Richard III received a Christian burial in Leicester over 500 years ago and it is only right, now that the Church where he was buried has been destroyed, that he is reinterred in the Cathedral in the same parish with honour and dignity.
The fact that the University of Leicester discovered the King through the expertise of its archaeological work and subsequent scientific investigation is undisputed.
The King's remains were discovered buried under a council car park in Leicester in 2012 by archaeologists.
Relatives of Richard III, whose body was unearthed in Leicester, have won the right to challenge plans to rebury his remains in the city.
