The deputy leader of Powys Council has been "severely reprimanded" for using racially offensive language at a council meeting.

Myfanwy Alexander used the n-word in a debate about cross-border health services.

She has apologised for using the term, which she said was a "careless word".

Ms Alexander was speaking about the treatment of some patients when they travel over the border to Shropshire for treatment.
