April Jones trial: 'Human bone' at Mark Bridger's home

Bone fragments found in the fireplace of a man accused of killing five-year-old April Jones were from a human skull, a jury was told.

A bone analysis specialist told Mold Crown Court the skull had been put in the fire "as fragments". A fragment was also found in the bath waste pipe.

Mark Bridger, 47, of Ceinws, Powys, denies abducting and murdering April, who went missing near her Machynlleth home on 1 October 2012.

He claims he accidentally ran her over. Cemlyn Davies reports from Mold Crown Court.
