Carmarthenshire council leadership no confidence vote lost

A vote of no confidence in the leadership of Carmarthenshire council amid "unlawful" payment claims has failed.

The vote against council leader Kevin Madge and deputy leader Meryl Gravell was lost 28 votes to 41.

Councillors agreed to accept the findings of a Wales Audit Office (WAO) report which ruled payments made to its chief executive were "unlawful".

Mr Madge admitted the situation had damaged the authority.
