Councillor Michael Williams said Mark Bridger's rented house had served as a painful reminder of the loss of April Jones, until the property was demolished today.
Everyone in the Machynlleth area will be relieved. It will especially be a huge relief for Coral and Paul and the rest of April Jones' family and the people living in the village of Ceinws.
It [was] the house of evil.
