Mark Bridger Drops Sentence Appeal

Mark Bridger, the man convicted of murdering schoolgirl April Jones, has abandoned his application for permission to appeal against his whole-life tariff.

The move was confirmed by the Judicial Office. 

Bridger kidnapped the 5 year old from outside her home in Machynlleth in mid Wales in October 2012 before murdering her. 

Her body has never been found.
