News In Brief

Reward ad cited in Bulmer theft trial

An advert calling for information on stolen artworks placed in Antiques Trade Gazette has been cited during the trial of those accused of a robbery at a Somerset house.

Art and antiques valued at millions of pounds were stolen from the home of Esmond Bulmer, a member of the Bulmers cider dynasty, and his wife in 2009.

The trial of 11 men accused of involvement in the theft and storage of the artworks is being heard at Bristol Crown Court.

Following the crime, Dick Ellis – a former Metropolitan Police Art and Antiques Squad detective who now runs advisory firm Art Management Group – was hired to help recover the stolen property.

He placed an advert in ATG offering a £50,000 reward in 2010 which was published again in 2015.
