A delegation from the Fire brigade's Union are travelling to London as part of the union's campaign against the plans to re locate Cumbria's control centre to Cheshire.
Tim Farron MP will hand over 18,247 signatures to the speaker of the House of Commons on behalf of the FBU and Cumbrian citizens.
The Union has already handed in a 3,298 signature petition to the county council which triggered a full council debate, however the plans were not changed as a result. The union say vital local knowledge will be lost if the control centre is moved out of the county.
