April Jones abduction: Search operation in Machynlleth

The BBC's Tim Willcox reports from Machynlleth where police and rescue teams have gathered to continue the search for April Jones.

April, five, was with friends near her Machynlleth home when she got into a van at 19:00 BST on Monday.

Officers said they hoped to gain intelligence from interviews with a local 46-year-old man arrested on Tuesday.

Hundreds of volunteers from across the country joined the search, and some people arrived at Machynlleth leisure centre before 07:00 BST on Wednesday, but were turned away.
