Firefighters are staging a strike this weekend in a dispute over pensions.
Members of the Fire Brigades Union (FBU) in England and Wales will walk out for five hours from noon on May 2, between 2pm and 2am on May 3 and between 10am and 3pm on May 5.
The union says that firefighters face the prospect of being sacked "merely for getting older", along with having to pay increased pension contributions.
