April Jones trial: Bridger 'in control' while sentenced

The man found guilty of abducting and murdering five-year-old April Jones in a sexually motivated attack must spend the rest of his life behind bars.

Mark Bridger, 47, of Ceinws, Powys, had claimed he accidentally run April over near her Machynlleth home and could not recall where he had put her body.

The BBC's Hywel Griffith describes the reaction from inside the court when the sentences were passed.
