Police in Wales have said the search for missing schoolgirl April Jones will continue, following the announcement that a man detained in connection with her disappearance has been charged with her murder.

Mark Bridger, who was arrested on Tuesday, has also been charged with April's abduction and with attempting to pervert the course of justice.

Speaking at a press conference, Chief Constable Jackie Roberts of Dyfed-Powys Police thanked the hundreds of volunteers who had assisted with search.

Superintendent Ian John said 10 specialist teams had now been deployed "in and around the town", and that the force remained "totally focussed and committed to finding April."
