A judge has ruled that two men accused of stealing items from a North East museum were pivotal in a raid which saw a hole smashed through a museum wall.
Precious chinese artefacts were stolen in the burglary at the Oriental Museum at Durham University that took place in April of last year.
Lee Wildman and Adrian Stanton had previously admitted conspiracy to burgle, but denied that it was them that had taken part in the break in.
The two men will be sentenced at Durham Crown Court tomorrow.
