AN acclaimed film which tells the true story of one woman's determination to locate and recover the lost remains of Richard III is being screened at Haworth.

The Lost King will be shown at the West Lane Baptist Centre on Friday, March 10, at 7.30pm.

Supporting the screening is the Yorkshire branch of the Richard III Society.

Branch members Alex Marchant and Alice Mitchell, both authors of historical novels, will be present to provide free literature, plus books for sale.

The discovery of King Richard's remains under a Leicester car park in 2012 followed years of detailed research by Philippa Langley and the Looking for Richard Project.

Richard III Society chair, Matthew Lewis, says: "This film acknowledges Philippa’s dogged determination, the contribution of many society members and the groundbreaking work of the late Dr John Ashdown-Hill."

Graham Mitchell, membership officer for the Yorkshire branch, said: "It's not widely known how relevant and significant Richard was to the north. Before becoming king, as Duke of Gloucester and Lord of the Manor of Skipton, he was for ten years regional governor of the entire north of England from the River Trent to the Scottish Borders. He was truly our only 'northern monarch'."
