20 May 2013 Last updated at 20:00 BST

A man accused of murdering April Jones told police he did not believe the five-year old had ever been in his house, a court has heard.

Mark Bridger, 47, of Ceinws, Powys, denies abducting and murdering April, who went missing from near her Machynlleth home on 1 October 2012.

The prosecution has told Mold Crown Court that April's blood was found in several locations at his home.

Mr Bridger claims he accidentally knocked her over with his Land Rover but cannot remember what he did with her because he was drunk.

Cemlyn Davies reports.
