Qing Dynasty Update

Here's a photo of the interior of the Qing Dynasty jade water bowl stolen from Durham University museum a week ago (CLICK). It shows the Chinese poem cut into the bottom. Now brace yourself for the stupidity of the English legal system. The four men and a woman arrested in connection with the robbery were all given bail, despite the fact that the two stolen artifacts are still missing! Durham Police are now trying to trace one of the bailed men, Lee Wildman, who has done a runner. They are also hunting Adrian Stanton, wanted for questioning about the robbery. Click the title link for photos of the wanted men and further details of the robbery, including how they broke in.
