MINISTERS have said it is not for them to decide where the remains of Richard III should be laid to rest, after they were found under a Leicester car park.

Justice minister Lord McNally said the University of Leicester would determine where the remains should be laid to rest.

There has been a competing bid to get the king, who was killed at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485, interred in York.
