The April Jones murder trial will today hear from a friend who claims to have seen the five-year-old getting into a van, which drove off with her inside.

Last week Mold Crown Court was shown footage of the vehicle of Mark Bridger, who is accused of abducting and murdering the schoolgirl. He denies April's murder.
