April Jones murder: 'Seek help first', family urges

The family of murdered five-year-old April Jones have urged people who fear they may sexually abuse children to seek help before they offend.

April went missing on 1 October 2012, near her home in Machynlleth, mid-Wales, but despite the biggest police search in British history, her body has never been found.

Mark Bridger, who was convicted of her murder in 2013, was found to have hundreds of pictures of children being abused on his computer.

April's family told BBC Wales' Week in Week Out programme that people who sought help for their feelings first "deserved a chance".
