Confusion has broken out over the future local authority control of Llangollen and its surrounding area, reports the Western Mail (p8).

Elections for the shadow unitary authority of Denbighshire are due on May 4, but Welsh Secretary John Redwood has ordered the Boundary Commission for Wales to look again at whether Llangollen's rural area should be part of the new council.

Further complications have been created by calls for the town to be placed under the control of the new Wrexham County Borough Council.

Glyndwr DC chief executive Julian Parry described Mr Redwood's timing as 'absurd'.

'Llangollen has been a hot potato for some time, but so have half a dozen other areas of North Wales. Why has he chosen now, at this late stage, to call for a review?' he told the paper.
