Fire crews in Essex have started a 24-hour strike in protest over cuts to services. It's the third day of action in three weeks.
Up to 300 Essex firefighters will walk out on strike tomorrow following a long running dispute over planned cuts to the service.
Our region's coastguards and driving test examiners have announced strike action from the end of the week in protest at spending cuts.
Fuel tanker drivers have ruled out a strike at Easter. But it's done little to ease the pressure at the pumps.
Demand for fuel continues to rise causing shortages and long queues at many petrol stations across our region.
On the eve of the Easter break that's causing concern for people trying to get away and the tourism businesses hoping for a much needed boost.
