One of the most prominent aspects in the search for April Jones over the last week has been the efforts of the local community to help police locate the missing five-year-old.

But as police have now asked volunteers to stand down, handing the search over to specialised teams, how are the local community feeling?

Dennis Jones, from Machynlleth, was involved in the search for April and says he is very proud to be part of the community.
