Richard III's coffin goes on public view

The coffin of England's King Richard III has gone on public view until Thursday when his 530-year-old remains will be reburied.

A day of ceremonies on Sunday ended with a service at Leicester Cathedral where a tomb fit for a royal awaits him.

A crown similar to one he was said to have worn on the last day of his life was placed on the coffin.

Earlier, people lined the procession route in Leicester waving flags and white roses, the symbol of Richard's House of York.
