MUSEUM artefacts worth £2million that were stolen in a daring heist have been recovered by police.
The jade bowl and figurine, which date back hundreds of years, were taken in a raid on Durham University’s Oriental Museum on April 5.
A police spokeswoman said that both of the pieces have now been found by officers.
Both the bowl and figurine date back to the Qing Dynasty, China’s last imperial dynasty.
Five people have been arrested so far, although two men are still being sought by detectives.
A spokeswoman for Durham Constabulary said: “Both artefacts have been recovered.”
No further details have yet been released about how officers found the artefacts.
