Financial pressures 'overwhelming' councils, WLGA deputy says

Mergers of local authorities are no longer sustainable, the Welsh Local Government Association (WLGA) has said.

Council leaders discussed the issue in Mold on Friday after the appointment of a new Welsh cabinet.

WLGA deputy leader councillor Aaron Shotton said a fresh start was needed with the appointment of a new minister.

Local government minister Mark Drakeford said he will meet leaders and others over next few months.
