Fire chiefs have warned of the risks of grass fires ahead of further industrial action in a long-running dispute with the Government over pensions.
The public need to be extra vigilant and avoid flicking cigarettes onto dried grass land, which is more likely to be arid because of the recent hot weather.
Members of the Fire Brigades Union in England and Wales will walk out for seven hours from 10am tomorrow in protest at controversial changes to their pensions and retirement age.
The London fire brigade has already said it will not put not grass fires during the walk-out unless there is an immediate risk to life or property.
