The council says that as well as endangering members of the public, it's also costing the authority thousands of pounds to replace them.
The culprit behind a crime wave in a west Wales village has been caught after items of washing disappeared.
Dyfed Powys Police have announced they are to close seven of its front counters across Mid and West Wales.
A real-life trench system has been created in Pendine, Carmarthenshire to educate children across Wales about the realities of war.
The 'Back to the Front' experience at Morfa Bay Adventure Centre features a 100 metre long trench system, equipped with sandbags and barbed wire.
The system has a frontline trench, an officer's dug-out, communication trench and a delousing area.
It also has 'funk holes', where soldiers may have slept, a toilet area and a cleaning area.
The brains behind the project is Director Andy Edwards, who created the project with the help of a £13,000 tourism grant.
Mr Edwards says he wants West Wales to play its part in marking the 'war to end all wars.'
'With all the media coverage planned for next year's centenary, I feel we have a chance to grab children's attention and tell them the stories that have built our history', he said.
A Carmarthen motor trader has been fined for advertising cars it did not have in order to lure in customers.
Moduron GWD and company owner Rhys Lloyd were found guilty by a jury at Swansea Crown Court last month of nine offences of engaging in a commercial practice which was misleading.
The court also found the firm left adverts for cars that had been sold four months previously on the internet to lure customers into the dealership in order to sell them something else.
The judge told Lloyd that he had tried to create a honeypot effect by using untrue adverts to bring in customers in the hope of selling them less attractive cars.
Moduron GWD was fined a total of £450 for the nine offences and ordered to pay £2,000 costs.
The case was bought by Carmarthenshire County Council Trading Standards Service which says it advised the company on several occasions that its practices were unfair and misleading but chose not to take heed.
The council's board member for public protection Cllr Jim Jones said,“This case shows that the local authority is prepared to prosecute to protect the interests of customers.”
PC Alun Morgan was told by Dyfed-Powys Police control room not to enter the water at Cilrychen Quarry in Carmarthenshire in June 2012, but chose to do so anyway, in an attempt to rescue a teenager.
Police received a report of a 14-year-old boy potentially drowning, and PC Morgan - a former lifeguard - was one of the first on the scene.
He cut a hole in the fence to gain access to the quarry, and tied a rescue line to himself, ready to enter the freezing lake.
When he caught sight of the boy, he dived 15ft into the water, and brought the boy to the surface, and then the water's edge.
The boy was taken to hospital, where he sadly died.
Steve Williams, Chair of the Police Federation of England and Wales, said: "In very traumatic circumstances, knowing the risks involved and despite instructions not to, PC Morgan plunged into treacherous quarry waters."
"He risked his own life, determined to save another. PC Morgan's bravery, endurance and dedication to duty cannot be underestimated."
The 2013 Police Bravery Awards were held last night, where PC Morgan joined other winners from around the UK.
The overall award went, posthumously, to PC Ian Dibell from Essex Police, who was shot dead when he tried to wrestle a weapon from a gunman who had opened fire on a couple in the street.
A Dyfed-Powys police officer who risked his own life in an attempt to save a drowning boy from deadly quarry waters has won the Welsh Police Bravery Award.
PC Alun Morgan was recognised for his attempt to save the 14-year-old at Cilrychen Quarry in Llandybie, Carmarthenshire, in June last year.
The teenager sadly died later in hospital.
PC Morgan was presented with the award at a ceremony last night, which followed a reception at 10 Downing Street where he met the Prime Minister, David Cameron and Home Secretary, Theresa May.
The B4336 is closed because of fallen power cables after an accident between the B4624 (Llandysul) and the B4459(Llanfihangel-ar-arth).
This photograph was taken at around 4.15pm this afternoon, from the village of Tumble, near Cross Hands in Carmarthenshire.
Anwen Roberts, who took the photo, said she was panicking because "you don't see tornadoes here often" and "who knows what damage it could have done?"
She describes the weather as raining, windy and dark.
It appears to show a funnel cloud, rather than a tornado. Funnel clouds contain condensed water droplets, but are different from tornadoes in that they do not touch the ground, nor do they create damage or debris.
The A40 is blocked and there's queueing traffic after an accident between the A483 Rhosmaen Street (Llandeilo Roundabout, Llandeilo) and the A4069 (Ashfield). Police are directing traffic.
The A484 is closed after an accident between Heol Bolahaul and the B4309 (Croesyceiliog).
Vandals are putting lives at risk across Carmarthenshire by wrecking life saving aids near docks and lakes.
The county council says there have been around 40 attacks on equipment over the last few months costing thousands of pounds.
The brightly coloured aids have gone missing or been destroyed in a wave of attacks at Loughor, Sandy Water Park, Llanstephan, and Swiss Valley.
Cllr Meryl Gravell, said, “This is a worrying trend of destructive vandalism. So close to the start of the summer holidays it is a tragedy in the making.
The police said they will prosecute anyone found tampering with the equipment.
The B-lines are contained in lifebelt shaped bright orange containers and park rangers check all the life saving stations on a daily basis, they cost around £90 each to replace.
