An historic clock tower in Powys at the centre of a row over its chimes has been saved, after a resident who took issue with the bells withdrew her complaint.

Residents in Knighton held a protest last week to save the clock, which chimes every 15 minutes, from being silenced.

The woman who complained has since withdrawn her formal 'noise nuisance' complaint and said she had "misjudged the strength of feeling" in the town.
