April Jones – The missing 5 year old

On 30th May 2013 Mark Bridger was found guilty of the abduction and murder of 5 year old April Jones.

It’s one of the most heartbreaking, sickening and emotional news stories I have covered in my broadcasting career.

Working for the radio station that covered the small town of Machynlleth, home of April and her family, I saw first hand the devastation this evil act had on a community. But I also saw strength and love that can be born out of such monstrous behaviour.

People from around the World came together to first try and find this little girl before showing love and support for the Jones family.

On the day Bridger was sentenced to life in prison I presented this documenatary across South and Mid Wales on Radio Pembrokeshire, Radio Carmathenshire, Radio Ceredigion, Scarlet FM, Nation Hits and Bridge FM.
