Firefighters urge organiser caution over firework displays

People are being warned over firework and bonfire displays this evening, as firefighters prepare to go on strike in a row over pensions.

Brigades in this region say back-up plans are in place to deal with life-threatening emergencies, but warn people shouldn't expect a full service.

Maurice Moore, from Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service, has urged organisers to consider delaying their bonfire displays.
