April Jones trial: Mark Bridger denies being paedophile

A man accused of murdering five-year-old April Jones in a sexually motivated attack has denied being a paedophile.

The prosecution told Mold Crown Court that Mark Bridger's explanation for having indecent images of children on his computer was "complete fantasy".

Mr Bridger, 47, of Ceinws, Powys, denies abducting and murdering April who went missing near her Machynlleth home on 1 October 2012.

He claims he accidentally knocked her over with his Land Rover.

Cemlyn Davies reports from Mold Crown Court.
