Man accused of Chinese art theft at Fitzwilliam Museum

A 25-year-old man has been charged in connection with the theft of Chinese art valued at up to £40m from the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge.

The man, from London, is the third to be charged after the art from several dynasties was taken on 13 April.

He is accused of conspiracy to commit burglary and theft.

He is due to appear before Cambridge magistrates on Monday. A 28-year-old man and a 15-year-old boy already face the same charges.
