A portrait of King Richard III made up of thousands of images from the reinterment events will be unveiled later today in Leicester.

The photo-mosaic is composed of photos taken during a week of events to mark the re-burial of the monarch this time last year.

Photos were sent in from members of the public as well as several local institutions including:

  • Leicester Cathedral

  • University of Leicester

  • Leicester City Council

  • Leicestershire County Council

It's part of the Visitor Centre's photography exhibition 'Reinterment: One Year On', which launched in February.

The portrait will be on display until 2nd May.
