Following a legal battle over the final resting place of the King, it was finally decided that it would be at Leicester Cathedral. In the days leading up to his reinterment more than 20,000 people queued to see the coffin. The king's coffin was lowered into a vault below the cathedral floor during a reinterment service on 26 March. Following the service 8,000 candles were lit in the city's Jubilee Square and Cathedral Gardens ahead of a fireworks display on the cathedral roof.
