Firefighters on strike
11th August 2014

London's firefighters strike today over a long running dispute with the Government over pensions and pay.

They will stop work for two hours at midday and tonight at 11pm. They also have 10 more strikes planned over the next five days.

Contingency plans are in place, but there will be less fire engines available to respond to Londoners.
