Members of the Fire Brigades Union (FBU) will be on strike for periods over three days this week.

The strike action will be taken as part of the continued dispute between fire crews and the Government over changes to pensions.

It takes place on Friday, May 2, from noon to 5pm, Saturday, May 3 from 2pm to 2am, and Sunday May 4 from 10am to 3pm.

Chief Fire Officer Dene Sanders said the public should be aware of the reduced service on these dates, although a cover service has been planned.
