April Jones's home town wins St David Award

The community of Machynlleth has been recognised for the support given to the family of murdered five-year-old April Jones at the first St David Awards.

First Minister Carwyn Jones's special award was presented by April's parents Paul and Coral at an event in Cardiff.

The minister said the community's spirit during the "horrifying events of October 2012 remains an inspiration".

Olympian Jade Jones, singer Cerys Matthews and scientist Dr Lyn Evans were also among those honoured.
