Mark Bridger is back in the witness box at Mold Crown Court this morning, being cross-examined by the prosecution.
He has been questioned about his movements on October 2nd - the day after April went missing.
Elwen Evans QC, for the prosecution, asked him what sort of state he was in at around 8.30am that morning.
Mr Bridger replied: "I was in a completely different state to normal... the realisation of me killing a child is with me. I'm distraught, I'm upset, I've had a drink. It's slightly different to a normal morning."
