The reburial of King Richard III in Leicester will cost around £1million pounds. Leicester Cathedral have released images of the 'raised tomb' that will be made as well as details of an event and ceremony.

To make way for the King's reburial, the cathedral will see a number of changes to create a significant space for the raised tomb with a new floor, special lights and a stained glass window.

Final details are still to be decided, but the reinterment will be the climax of a week of events in Leicester City Centre.
