The fifth man, charged following the theft of millions of pounds worth of Chinese art from a Cambridge museum, has denied the offence.

Thieves took 18 "valuable and culturally significant" Chinese artworks, mostly jade, from the Fitzwilliam Museum, last April.

Thomas Kiely, 21, of Giraud Street, Tower Hamlets, London, denies conspiracy to commit burglary.

The case was set for trial on 20 May, at Cambridge Crown Court.

Four men were sentenced over the burglary in September.
