No Plantagenet King has had this much press coverage since 1485.

Our story about the search for King Richard III’s final resting place went live just after midnight, since when the story has really captured people’s imagination around the world.

From the Ormskirk and Skelmersdale Advertiser to the Holyhead and Anglesey Mail, every corner of the UK has shown an interest, and now the story is spreading around the world. Here is just a selection of the coverage.

You can also hear Richard Buckley from ULAS and Philippa Langley from the Richard III Society interviewed on the Radio 4 Today programme on iPlayer, starting at 2h48m. And BBC Radio Leicester's Talking History programme on Sunday had a live report from the site (starting at 34m) followed by a studio discussion.
