Firefighters in West Country to strike

Firefighters in the region are to go on strike next week in a row over pensions.

Almost 80% of members of the Fire Brigades Union voted for industrial action in a ballot earlier this month. A four hour walkout will take place next Wednesday.

Fire services in the West say it will mean a reduced emergency service, but plans are in place to provide protection.
