The community of Machynlleth has been recognised for the support given to the family of murdered five-year-old April Jones at the first St David Awards.

First Minister Carwyn Jones' special award was presented by April's parents Paul and Coral at an event in Cardiff.

The Reverend Kathleen Rogers, speaking for the Machynlleth community, said: "April Jones, in her very short life, has left a lasting legacy to our community and that is the true meaning of unity, compassion and love. She will always be in our hearts."
