New fire strikes announced; NORTH TODAY.

FIREFIGHTERS will go on strike again as a row with the Government over pensions rumbles on. The Fire Brigades' Union (FBU) will hold two further stoppages from 9am on June 12 to 9am the following day, and from 10am-5pm on June 21. Fire services in the region will be implementing plans to deal with the walk-outs.

Durham's deputy chief fire officer, Stuart Errington, said: "We are very disappointed that, despite talks between the FBU and Government, there is still no negotiated resolution to the current national dispute. We will be following tried-and-tested plans to provide a professional response in the event of a fire or other emergency during the strike action."
