The Egyptian government has approved plans to search Tutankhamun’s tomb for the hidden resting place of Queen Nefertiti using radar.

The queen is believed to be interred behind a hidden chamber .  

It’s believed that Tutankhamun’s sudden death meant that there was no time to build a tomb and he was buried in an existing one.

Mushira Mussa, a spokesperson for the antiquities ministry, said: "The committee of experts has given its approval for using radars,"

"But we are still awaiting clearance from security services, and some time in November we may start searching"
