Drivers advised to plan ahead on King Richard III route

Have your say

Drivers are being reminded to plan ahead as King Richard III makes his final journey through Leicestershire on Sunday.

The king’s cortege will travel through a number of county towns and villages as part of the week-long reinterment events.

This means there will be a number of road closures in parts of the county so drivers are being urged to heed travel advice.,
