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.

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