The grim news was revealed by Detective Superintendent Reg Bevan at a press conference in Aberystwyth.

He said: “Mark Bridger has been arrested on suspicion of the murder of April Jones.

“He remains in custody at Aberystwyth police station where he continues to be questioned.

“The arrest does not detract from our efforts to find April and we remain committed to finding her.

“Her family has been informed of this development and as you would expect they continue to be supported by a family liaison officer.

“While this is a significant development in the investigation, I once again appeal to the public for information which may help us find April.

“We are looking to trace the movements of Mark Bridger between 6.30pm on Monday and 3.30pm on Tuesday and any sightings of him between these times.

“We also need information regarding the movements of the blue Land Rover Discovery registration L503 MEP between these times.”
