A public meeting's being held in Haydon Bridge in Northumberland this evening (January 12) over plans to close the town's fire station.

It's part of a plan by Northumberland County Council to save half a million pounds from its budget.

Some locals say the closure will put lives at risk. The council has said that the plans are designed to have as little impact as possible on services.
