Carmarthenshire council has elected its first Plaid Cymru leader since the unitary authority was created.

Emlyn Dole, who leads the Plaid Cymru group on the local authority, was formally voted in on Wednesday.

Plaid Cymru and independent councillors took over control of the council last week following three years of a Labour and independents' coalition.

But Labour leader Kevin Madge was voted out at his party's annual general meeting last week.
