More than 100 firefighters have staged a protest in Suffolk over plans to cut the number of firefighters on some fire engines from five to three.
The Fire Brigades' Union is warning the changes proposed by the Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service are not safe and will put crews at the public in danger.
Fire chiefs are determined to push ahead insisting the policy is both effective and safe.
