Region braced for fresh fire strike

Firefighters are warning people over firework and bonfire displays as they prepare to go on strike.

Members of the Fire Brigades Union will walk out this evening, in a row over changes to their 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.

The strike comes in the run up to Guy Fawkes Night - one of the busiest times of the year for the service.
