April Jones trial hears of Mark Bridger's 'complex web of lies'

A man accused of murdering five-year-old April Jones told a "complex web of lies" about her death, the prosecution has said in its cross-examination.

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

Earlier, he told Mold Crown Court he accidentally knocked her over in his Land Rover but did not remember what he had done with her.

Her body has never been found.

Cemlyn Davies was in court.
