Bridger felt 'fright and fear' the night of April's death

A man accused of murdering April Jones has told a court he felt sick with "fright and fear" after he said he accidentally knocked her over in his car.

Mark Bridger, 47, of Ceinws, Powys, denies abducting and murdering the five-year-old who went missing near her Machynlleth home on 1 October 2012.

The prosecution has told Mold Crown Court he murdered her in a sexually motivated attack and told police a "web of lies" to cover it up.

Hywel Griffith reports.
