Fire and Rescue changes "a cut too far"

"A cut too far that will put lives at risk." That's how the Fire Brigades Union has described proposed changes to the way Hampshire Fire and Rescue responds to emergencies.

Fire chiefs have set out a number of significant changes aimed at modernising the service as it battles with a multi-million pound funding gap.

But the FBU has raised serious concerns about the possible loss of traditional crewed fire engines and wants residents to have their say. Emma Wilkinson reports.
