April Jones: Family releases balloons on missing girl's sixth birthday

Hundreds of pink balloons have been released to mark the sixth birthday of the missing school girl April Jones.

Her family invited people in the community to Bryn y Gog green in Machynlleth, where she used to play.

A massive police search has taken place for April since she disappeared from her estate in the town in October last year.

Mark Bridger, 47, is due to stand trial later this month for the abduction and murder of April, which he denies.
