Firefighters to stage industrial action

Firefighters across the country are going on strike today in a row with the Government over proposals to change pension services.

Members of the Fire Brigades Union (FBU) are staging industrial action from 4pm to 12pm.

The planned strike has seen some authorities, including Cleveland Fire Brigade, train auxiliary firefighters to provide emergency cover during the disruption to services.
