An auction in aid of missing schoolgirl April Jones has raised more than £4,000, boosted by items donated by Welsh stars.

Singer Catherine Zeta Jones' shoes were sold for £410 to a buyer from Rhyl, while a diamante-studded denim jacket belonging to singer Bonnie Tyler was also auctioned off.

The money will be given to April's Fund, which has reached nearly £50,000.

The five-year-old disappeared from Machynlleth exactly two months ago.
