Is King Richard III's son buried in Kent?

This week, it was revealed a battle-scarred skull and bones found under a car park in Leicester was that of King Richard III. But now there are calls to investigate whether his illegitimate son really is buried in a churchyard in Kent.

In the grounds of St Mary's Church in Eastwell, near Ashford, there is a tombstone for Richard Plantagenet - who is thought to have lived in the village - until he died in 1550. John Ryall investigates.
