A fourth person thought to have been involved in the theft of a wooden antique cup from an auction house in East Sussex is being sought by police.

A CCTV image has been released of the man entering Gorringes in North Street, Lewes, on Friday morning.

Two 17-year-old boys from London and a 32-year-old man from Kent were arrested at the scene and charged with robbery.

The man being sought is described as white, with dark short hair. He was wearing a dark jacket, blue jeans and black trainers.
