A coroner's hearing into the death of murdered schoolgirl April Jones has concluded without a verdict.

The five-year-old girl was abducted on 1 October, 2012 and killed by Mark Bridger, 47, of Ceinws, Powys, in a sexually motivated attack.

Police said April's remains would now be formally released to the family, allowing a funeral to take place.

Coroner Louise Hunt said she could not reach any conclusion which had not already been reached by the court case.

Cemlyn Davies reports.
