  • Leicester Mercury: Leicester Cathedral forced to stay open as huge crowds turn out to view the coffin of Richard III, by Peter Warzynski (March 23, 2015) –

    Is it only me who thinks that people are not only visiting Leicester Cathedral to see the coffin (though I must admit I very much like the idea of it being made by Michael Ibsen, King Richard III descendant), but want to visit King Richard III and pay their respect before his burial on Thursday? Especially as attendance is so very limited for the burial ceremony itself.
