  1. Stolen vase worth £2.5m found by police in London

    Recovered Ming Vase

    A 15th-century Ming vase worth around £2.5 million thought to have been stolen from a collection in Switzerland has been found by police in London.

    The antique, which is described as "a one-off and unique", is believed to have been swiped in a burglary by an organised crime group based in the capital in June last year.

    Two men, aged 44 and 42, were arrested in Mayfair, west London, in connection with the theft of the vase, which dates back to the Chinese Ming Dynasty.

    Metropolitan Police Det Ch Insp Jimi Tele said: "This is a significant step forward in what remains a complex investigation into a high-value burglary."
