Leonardo da Vinci accused in car accident

Breaking News

One of five men accused of being part of a £4.25m Leonardo da Vinci extortion plot has been involved in a car crash.

Calum Jones, 45, was described as being "shaken" after the incident, which was said to have happened as he made his way to a railway station.

As a result he did not make it to the High Court in Edinburgh on time and no evidence was heard for the day.

Mr Jones and four others deny seeking to extort money for the safe return of the Madonna of the Yarnwinder.
