Richard III's burial takes place

The remains of King Richard III have been buried at Leicester Cathedral.

Leicester Cathedral

A special service took place during which actor Benedict Cumberbatch, who's a distant relation of the king, read a poem.
The poem was specially written for the occasion by poet Carol Ann Duffy.
Richard III died at Bosworth Field in 1485, at the end of the War of the Roses.
His remains were found beneath a Leicester car park in 2012.

• Richard III has been painted as a villain. It's said he killed his two nephews so he could take the throne and William Shakespeare wrote a play about him but some historians say this was propaganda and might have been unfair.
