April Jones: prosecution case evidence ends


Evidence in the trial of a man accused of murdering five-year-old April Jones in a sexually motivated attack has concluded.

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

April's parents Coral and Paul hugged as the defence case ended at Mold Crown Court.

The judge told the jury it was now a "very important" stage of the trial.

The case will continue on Tuesday, after the bank holiday, and the judge said he expected to sum up the case on Wednesday.

Cemlyn Davies was in court.
