A bid to open a new strip club is being opposed because it is too near the resting place of a former English monarch.

The proposed site in Leicester city centre is inappropriate due to its close proximity to Richard III's tomb, a councillor has said.

Jagdeep Narll has sent in an application to the city council to open the sexual entertainment venue in Millstone Lane, Leicester, despite claims it would be a "particularly unsuitable location".

The bones of the monarch, who died in battle in 1485, were found under a city car park and moved to Leicester Cathedral two years ago.

And a nearby children's nursery has written to the council to object on the grounds the two businesses would be 'mere yards apart'.
