Fire Strike Plans

The Essex Fire Service says "excellent contingency plans" will be in place when fire-fighters go on strike tomorrow. The Fire Brigade Union says members will walk out at 10am - 6pm. They claim one in eight fire-fighter posts have been cut since 2008 and more are at risk.

Essex Fire and Rescue say the union actually balloted on procedural matters, most of which have been resolved.
