A group of relatives of King Richard III, whose body was unearthed in a council car park last year, have won the right to bring High Court proceedings to challenge a plan to rebury his remains in Leicester.
Many of his relatives want the body buried in York, claiming it was the King’s wish.
A High Court judge in London urged the relatives and other parties involved to act with dignity in deciding the King's final resting place or risk embarking on a new legal War of the Roses.
The judge gave permission to the Plantagenet Alliance to bring judicial review proceedings against the Justice Secretary and the University of Leicester.
