Council chief Myfanwy Alexander resigns over N-word

Powys council's deputy leader has resigned after using the N-word during a council meeting.

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

She later apologised and said she had been speaking about the treatment of some patients when they travel over the border to Shropshire for treatment.

After initially refusing to quit over the "careless word", she said she came under "pressure" to resign on Tuesday.
