The jury in the April Jones murder trial has today visited several key locations. They include April's school, where the accused, Mark Bridger, attended a parents evening on the night of her disappearance.

They also went to the Bryn-y-Gog estate where April was last seen playing with a friend.

The jury of nine women and three men then went onto the centre of Machynlleth and several other locations before visiting Mark Bridger's rented home in Ceinws.

This, say the prosecution, is where April's blood and DNA were discovered.

The jury members also visited the site where 47-year-old Mark Bridger was arrested. He denies three charges of abduction, murder and intending to pervert the course of justice.

The trial will continue at Mold Crown Court tomorrow.
