A selection of photos from the reinterment of Richard III, which took place on Thursday 26 March, are now available to view.

The reinterment of the last Plantagenet King of England has captured the imaginations of people from around the world of all ages, professions and backgrounds. It has been described by Her Majesty The Queen as an event 'of national and international significance' and attracted thousands of visitors to the city of Leicester.

During the ceremony nearly 600 people gathered in the Cathedral to see Richard III laid to rest, while thousands more gathered at Jubilee Square and the Clock Tower to watch the service unfold on big screens.
