A jury has been sworn in for the trial of a man accused of killing his five-week-old granddaughter.

Mark Jones, 45, of Cwmbran, has pleaded not guilty to murder and is being tried at Newport Crown Court.

Amelia Rose Jones died in November 2012, two days after police were called to a home in Pontnewydd, Cwmbran, following concerns over her health, the court heard.

The trial has been adjourned for the day and will restart on Wednesday.
