A second man has been charged with conspiracy to burgle after a rhinoceros head was stolen from a Surrey museum.

Tony Moore, 30, of Ottowa Road, Tilbury, Essex was charged over the break-in at Haslemere Educational Museum, which happened on 27 May 2011.

Jamie Channon, 32, of Melba Gardens, Tilbury was charged last November over the burglary.

The pair are also accused of conspiring to burgle 13 supermarkets in Kent, Sussex, Surrey and Hertfordshire.

More than £60,000 worth of cigarettes were taken from the stores.

They are due to appear before South West Surrey magistrates in Guildford on 6 March.
