Have your say

Firefighters will walk out on strike today (Saturday) as a blazing row with the government over pensions rumbles on.

Members of the Fire Brigades Union (FBU) across the area will be on strike from noon to 2pm and from 10.59pm to 11.59pm.

The action is the final day of a week of action as the union continues to dispute government plans to make firefighters work until they are 60 to claim their prension or lose money if they retire early.
