April's law could 'protect other children' - Jones family

A campaign by the family of murdered schoolgirl April Jones calling for tougher sentences for sex offenders has been debated in Parliament.

"April's Law" calls for sex offenders to remain on the register for life, with an online petition receiving more than 100,000 signatures.

Five-year-old April was killed by paedophile Mark Bridger after being snatched from outside her home in Machynlleth, Powys, in October 2012.

Speaking outside Westminster, April's mum Coral Jones and sister Jazmin Jones said they hope a new law will protect other families from the "horror" they went through.
