    Man charged with the murder of April Jones
    Sat 06 Oct 2012

    Statement from Iwan Jenkins, District Crown Prosecutor, Crown Prosecution Service Cymru-Wales:

    “The Crown Prosecution Service has been in close contact with Dyfed Powys Police as their extensive investigation into April’s disappearance has developed. In particular, we have been offering advice and guidance to the police since the suspect Mark Bridger was arrested last Tuesday.

    “My role is to examine the evidence that is currently available and advise the police in respect of charges.

    “I now have to advise that, having carried out a detailed review of the evidence gathered so far by Dyfed Powys Police, my conclusion is that there is sufficient evidence to charge Mark Bridger with the murder of April Jones, and that it is in the public interest to do so.
    “I have also concluded that there is sufficient evidence to charge the defendant with attempting to pervert the course of justice and child abduction.

    The people of Machynlleth in mid-Wales tied pink ribbons to gate posts, trees and railings all over town after five-year-old April Jones went missing, as a way to show their hope and determination that she would be found alive. Now they have become ribbons of mourning.
    Police announced that 46-year-old Mark Bridger, a former lifeguard who knew April and her family, had been charged with murder, abduction and perverting the course of justice.
    On Saturday night it became official - the forensic experts in the graveyard of the church of St Peter had been looking for clues to a killing.

    April Jones search: 'No family or town should have to endure such grief and despair'
    Our reporter Simon Gaskell has been in Machynlleth since news of April’s disappearance first broke. Here, he describes the heart-rending events that have unfolded within a week in the small Powys town

    This time last week, Machynlleth was known to most as a quiet, picturesque market town nestled in the Dyfi valley.

    It was a hidden gem that – while popular with many – would have been a revelation to others.

    But in the space of less than seven days it, and the tragic story that has unfolded here, has made it a name which is burning in everybody’s thoughts and is on everybody’s lips.

    Police Superintendent: There's still hope for April Jones
    Superintendent Ian John has insisted that police still hope to find missing five-year-old April Jones alive.
    April, who has cerebral palsy, was playing out late on her bicycle as a treat for a glowing school report when she disappeared on Monday evening.
    Former lifeguard Mark Bridger, 46, was charged yesterday with the abduction and murder of April.
    Local man Bridger is also accused of perverting the course of justice and will appear before Aberystwyth Magistrates’ Court tomorrow.

    April Jones update: 'This town will stick together, for April's sake'
    People in the town of Machynlleth will stick together and support one another to come through the other side of the worst ordeal in its 1,200-year-history, figures in the community have stressed.

    For its population of 2,000, Monday marks a week since five-year-old April Jones disappeared.

    But those who have been at the forefront of efforts to maintain the community spirit that has typified the search for the girl say that their support for April’s family, and each other, will be “unstinting”.


    Specialist search teams have embarked on a seventh night searching for missing five-year-old April Jones.
    Police-led units will conduct further searches overnight, after the mountain rescue sections of the operation were scaled back.
    Earlier, people of the community - many dressed in pink - processed from the Bryn-y-Gog estate, where the five-year-old was abducted, to St Peter's Church in the centre of the town.

    The site is just a short distance from the field that more than dozen officers from Dyfed Powys Police and British Transport Police were meticulosly searching yesterday.

    The tangled ties between Mark Bridger and April Jones
    Mark Bridger, 46, is the uncle of the little girl’s two half sisters.
    Detectives looking at the complex relationships of Mr Bridger’s past, discovered that he had fathered two children with a woman called Elaine Griffiths. Mr Bridger and Elaine had Connor and Sophie in the 1990s.
    Around the same time, Elaine’s sister Karen had two daughters - Hazel and Abby - with April’s father Paul Jones. He subsequently married April’s mother, Coral.
    The connection means that Mr Bridger’s children are cousins to April’s half sisters.
    Abby, Hazel, Connor and Sophie all took part in the search for the little girl who went missing last Monday evening from close to her home in Machynlleth, Mid Wales.

    Wearing spectacles and a black jumper over a grey T-shirt, Bridger spoke only to confirm that he could hear proceedings and his identity. He appeared to be listening intently during the 18-minute appearance. He was remanded in custody.
