As the seventh day of searching comes to an end, April's family were joined by friends and supporters to release lanterns into the sky in the latest show support from a community that has been shaken to its core by the past week's events.

There were also similar shows of support around Britain. In Blackpool the famous and iconic tower was lit with a pink glow - the colour of the ribbons that have become linked to the search for the five year old.

Emergency services in the town are still determined to work until they find any trace of April, although hope of finding her alive is fading.
