Bail extension for 24 arrested over rhino horn theft

24 people who were arrested as part of a national investigation into high-value museum thefts have had their bail extended.

The 20 men, two women and two teenage boys were arrested in September in connection with six crimes over a four-month period at museums and auction houses across England.

Chinese artefacts and rhinoceros horn were targeted in six incidents - two thefts and an attempted theft from Durham University Oriental Museum and further incidents at Gorringes Auction House in East Sussex, Norwich Castle Museum in Norfolk and the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge.
