Family of April Jones bids a final farewell

The family of April Jones said a final farewell as the town that shared their grief came to a standstill.

The tiny white coffin carrying her remains was borne through the streets of Machynlleth in a horse-drawn hearse as the community stood in silence or followed behind, all wearing pink in tribute to the schoolgirl.
