April Jones: Prayers at vigil for missing girl in Machynlleth

As the search for missing April Jones enters its fourth day in Machynlleth, local people are hoping and praying the five-year-old will be found safe and well.

Up to 50 people sat in quiet contemplation for an hour on Wednesday night in the Parish church, then lit candles on the altar.

Radio Wales' Gilbert John spoke to some of them, including the Bishop of Bangor, Andy John, who senses many are hiding their fears.
