Two controversial proposals in a £20m package of savings in Powys have been thrown out by councillors.

Plans to cut special education services and to raise day care centre charges were shelved during a full council meeting in Llandrindod Wells disrupted by protesters.

After failure to agree a budget the meeting was adjourned to 5 March.

Leaders of the different groups on the council will now meet cabinet members to thrash out new proposals.

BBC Wales education correspondent Arwyn Jones met protesters and spoke to Jamie Owen on Wales Today.
