'SCAB FIREMEN' FURY.

SECURITY men in Scotland are being trained as firefighters to act as "Rent-a-Scab" strike cover in case of industrial action in England.

Prison escort staff are getting crash courses at a secret location in Lincolnshire before returning to their day jobs north of the border. Security firm Reliance is training the workers for AssetCo, which has a contract with the Tory-controlled London Fire Brigade to operate a reserve force of 27 fire engines.

A similar arrangement has been made in Lincolnshire. The Fire Brigades Union yesterday said the deal "means the taxpayer is paying pounds 9million for a scab fire force".
