The Fire Brigades Union has praised fire fighters for their unity and determination during last night's strike. Fire fighters across England and Wales walked out on strike between 6.30pm and 11pm in the dispute about pensions.
FBU General Secretary Matt Wrack said: 'Fire fighters have once again shown their determination to defend their pension rights and to campaign for a pension which reflects the job they do. We hope government will now sit down and negotiate a settlement to this dispute.'
