Shakespeare dealer Raymond Scott 'I had to pinch myself'

An antiques dealer has been jailed for eight years for handling a stolen copy of Shakespeare's First Folio.

Raymond Scott, 53, from County Durham was cleared of stealing the treasure, but found guilty of handling stolen goods at a trial in June.

The 1623 work was taken from a display cabinet at Durham University in 1998.

He described to a documentary film crew the moment he showed the Shakespeare folio in his possession to antique book expert Stephen Massey.
