You will no doubt have seen the exciting news that the body of King Richard III has been identified following the discovery of a skeleton in a Leicester car park.  Though Richard did not fight at Towton [he was only 9 at the time] his elder brother, Edward IV, led the Yorkist forces that day.

      I wholeheartedly agree with Richard that Richard III’s body should be buried with all due honours in York Minster. He will be forever associated with Yorkshire and it is there that his remains should be allowed to rest in peace at last. His association with Leicester was hardly of his choosing after all.

    No question. Honour him with a burial at York Minster and full Catholic rites as he would have known
