Firefighters fear abuse.

FIRE FIGHTERS claim bosses are trying to make them act like double-glazing salesmen in a door-to-door safety drive.

And they fear the plans for them to call uninvited at houses to offer advice will make them targets for abuse.

Fire Brigades Union chairman for Lothian and Borders Martin Scott said: ''If the door goes and there's a double-glazing salesman, your attitude is, 'Go away'.

''Salesman get a lot of abuse and we can see that happening to us as well.''
