More than 500 years since he was killed in battle, archaeologists believe they have finally found the skeleton of King Richard III, buried beneath a council car park.

Experts said a fully intact skeleton matched much about what they knew about the medieval king, including his reputation as a "hunchback", and are hoping that DNA tests will put their beliefs beyond doubt.
