Firefighters across our region are set to walk out this morning in a row over retirement ages and pensions.

The strike is due to last for seven hours from 10am to 5pm.

It follows a 24-hour strike earlier this month in the long-running dispute between the Fire Brigades Union and the fire service.

The fire service says "robust contingency arrangements" are in place, but people have been urged to take extra care during the strikes.
