Fitzwilliam Museum Chinese art theft: Man remanded

A man has appeared in court in connection with the theft of Chinese art valued at up to £40m from the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge.

The 25-year-old man, from London, appeared before Cambridge magistrates accused of conspiracy to commit burglary and theft.

He is the third person to be charged after the art from several dynasties was taken on 13 April.

He was remanded in custody to appear at Cambridge Crown Court on 28 May.

A 28-year-old man and a 15-year-old boy already face the same charges.
