Firefighters across Mid and West Wales fear lives could be lost because of changes in working practices. It comes just a week after the Fire Brigades Union spoke of its concern about plans to replace some frontline fire engines with smaller vans.
Some firefighters say that other changes within the service are also putting lives at risk. They say changes have been introduced in order to save money. And they argue that's a step too far, a claim that the man in charge of the service rejects.
