"On behalf of Powys County Council, and the people of Powys, I would like to express our great sadness on hearing the news of the death of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II," said Cllr Gareth Ratcliffe.

"Alongside many other communities in Wales and around the world, we extend our heartfelt condolences to the Royal Family at this difficult time.
