From 9am today, firefighters across England and Wales will stage a 24-hour strike today in their long-running dispute with the Government over pensions.
Another strike will be held on June 22 as their dispute over pension reforms and retirement age remains deadlocked.
FBU general secretary Matt Wrack accused the Government of refusing to negotiate, adding that firefighters were determined to continue with their campaign.
Firefighters have been warned by the union that they face significant pensions cuts and working until later in life before retiring.
