The house where police believe Mark Bridger murdered April Jones may be put up for rent. People living in nearby Machynlleth say they want the house to be demolished. However, authorities say they can't buy it to tear it down, because it's privately owned.
Powys County Council: "As the property is a private dwelling the county council has no remit."
Bridger, 47, abducted the five-year-old as she played with friends near her home in on the Bryn-y-Gog estate in Machynlleth, mid Wales, in October last year. Alexandra Lodge reports.
The premeditated attack happened three days after Bridger was allowed to associate with other prisoners.
Ferreira and other life prisoners had talked about attacking Bridger to make him reveal the whereabouts of April's body, police were told.
Jonathan Sharp, prosecuting, said: "He said that Bridger's crime had been discussed, and he claimed people had suggested that if Bridger was attacked, rather than say befriended, Bridger would then be more likely to reveal where April Jones's body was."
Bridger needed more than 30 stitches to the face wound, which required surgery under general anaesthetic. He will be scarred for life.
He also suffered a cut to his arm as he tried to defend himself.
First Minister Carwyn Jones says he will write to the Prime Minister following Mark Bridger's conviction for the murder of April Jones, asking for action to counter the availability of images of child sex abuse on the internet.
We were all deeply shocked the events surrounding the tragic murder of April Jones. There are some who take the view that the internet should be as unfettered as possible. I do not take that view when it comes to - among other things - child pornography.
– First Minister Carwyn Jones AM
Mr Jones was replying to Montgomeryshire AM Russell George. His constituency includes Machynlleth where Mark Bridger abducted April Jones. Hundreds of indecent images were found on the murderer's computer.
Mr George called on the First Minister to support efforts to get internet search companies to adopt a zero-tolerance to such images. He also said that Mark Bridger's conviction and sentencing gave the 'tear in the community fabric' of Machynlleth the chance to heal.
