THE campaign to inter the remains of the Yorkist King Richard III in the city looks to have been stopped in its tracks after the Minster said they should remain in Leicester.
Following a long wait it was announced this week the remains of a man buried under a carpark in Leicester were those of the last Plantagenet king.
More than 10,000 people have signed a petition to bring his remains to York Minster from Leicester.
But a spokesman for the Minster said the cathedral believes his remains should stay in Leicester.
"When the archaeologists found an intact body the Ministry of Justice licence was drawn up in those terms and explicitly named Leicester Cathedral. Since the news of the finding last year local people, like the people of York, have expressed a very strong wish that Richard, who has been with them since 1485, should stay in their keeping.
