Mark Bridger has been found guilty of abducting and murdering five-year-old April Jones who disappeared while playing near her home last year.

Bridger, 47, of Ceinws, mid Wales, denied murder claiming he accidentally ran April over and could not recall where he had put her body.

Bridger's former friend Anwen Morris explains he was well-known and well-liked in the small town of Machynlleth. She had known him for 15 years and he had been part of the local community.
