The crypt in which Elvis Presley was first buried at Forest Hill Cemetery in Memphis, Tennessee has been withdrawn from a Los Angeles auction after protests it should be kept as a shrine.

More than 10,000 fans signed a petition against the sale of the tomb which has remained empty since Elvis’s body was moved to a permanent site in the Graceland Meditation Garden in October 1977.

The cemetery says it now intends to find a plan “that best suits the interests of the fans while respecting and preserving the memory of Elvis”.
