A Powys Independent councillor has defected to Plaid Cymru and becomes its sole representative on the local authority.

Gary Price, who is also mayor of Llandrindod Wells, sits on the council's ruling board.

Mr Price has been an Independent for six years, but believes Plaid has the best policies to "take Wales forward".

Mid and West Wales AM Nerys Evans said she was delighted to welcome a new councillor into the party.

Mr Price said: "I am very happy to be representing Plaid Cymru within Powys County Council, and I will continue to work tirelessly for the people I represent in my area."
