Londoners get their say on fire cuts

Londoners are finally getting their say on the future of London's fire service.

Public consultation started today on plans to close 12 fire stations, with the loss of more than 500 firefighters.

Their union calls the cuts "reckless".

But service managers, who need to save almost 29-million pounds, insist response time targets won't be affected.
