The roof had come off the caravan in the tiny village of Ceinws, just outside April's home town of Machynlleth in Mid Wales.

Officers were breaking up debris around the vehicle, and moving large bricks beside it. Forensic tents have also been erected.

It came as intensive searches around the village continued, with apparently more personnel involved than on previous days.

Meanwhile, it has emerged that Mark Bridger (right), the suspect accused of murdering April, is related to her family.

Mr Bridger (46) is the uncle of the little girl's two half-sisters.

April was playing with friends when she disappeared, and no sign of her has been seen since.

Police have said they are continuing an intensive search for her. (© Daily Telegraph, London)
