April Jones case: Mother's last moments with missing girl


The jury in the trial of a man accused of murdering five-year-old April Jones has heard of her parents' last moments with her before she disappeared.

A statement from April's mother Coral read out in Mold Crown Court said April had wanted to go out to play but her parents had initially refused.

They gave in after she had a "little bit of a tantrum", said her mother.

Mark Bridger, 47, from Ceinws, Powys, denies abducting and murdering April who disappeared on 1 October 2012.

Hywel Griffith reports.
