A judge has ruled that two men were pivotal in a raid in which a hole was smashed through a museum wall, and precious chinese artifacts were stolen .

The burglary happened in April of last year at the Oriental museum at Durham University.

The court heard how one of the defendants, Wildman, had lost the valuable artefacts on wasteland - which the judge described as "utter stupidity."
