Wales' Future Generations Commissioner, Sophie Howe, has called for a fundamental review of the role of councillors, after a "diversity crisis" warning was issued ahead of local elections in May.

Ms Howe, an ex-councillor, warned that "yah-boo" politics, that was "particularly off-putting to women, should be challenged.
