Funeral of schoolgirl April Jones to take place today
THE funeral of murdered schoolgirl April Jones will be held later today.
Her funeral will take place in her home town of Machynlleth, nearly a year after she was abducted and killed by Mark Bridger.
Hundreds of mourners are expected to attend and have been asked to wear pink, April's favourite colour, for the service which will begin at 12pm at St Peter's Church in the town.
Bridger was given a whole life sentence for her murder earlier this year.
