A fifth person has been charged in connection with a burglary at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge.

Millions of pounds worth of Chinese art was stolen from the museum in April.

21 year old Thomas Kiely, from Giraud Street in London, attended Parkside Police Station in Cambridge last night (Monday night).

He was charged with conspiracy to commit burglary, and appeared at Cambridge Magistrate's Court today (Tuesday).

He has been remanded in custody and is due back in court later this month.

Earlier this year, three men were jailed for their parts in the burglary at the museum, and a 16 year old boy was given a detention and training order.
