April Jones: Mark Bridger 'probably responsible' for death, court told

The man accused of murdering missing April Jones is expected to say he was probably responsible for her death but he did not murder her, a court has heard.

Former lifeguard Mark Bridger, 47, has denied three charges, including her murder and abduction following her disappearance in Machynlleth, Powys, on 1 October.

Five-year-old April's parents, Coral and Paul, were at the hearing at Mold Crown Court.

The trial date was set for 25 February, and it is expected to last four weeks.
